Yes, I like Xerene stacker.  More similarities than differences with Helicon, 
IMO.  I have the personal addition and only irritating result of not spending 
another 100 bucks is that it strips the 
exif--I just do an exif transplant form a jpg and it takes 1 minute.  One thing 
that might be better is the option to cache first-pass results in DMap, for 
faster re-stacking with different contrast threshold in the prosumer version.  
It is very cool that in any version one can use a Pmax output to touch up a 
Dmap--latter preserves colors and smoothness better but can lose details. 

It all sounds very complicated but a couple of tutorials and a couple stacks 
later, you're good to go and can probably get 90% of the quality as someone how 
has used it for years. 
The touch-up tools are awesome and much faster and easier than using PS.
