Macro stacking questions

I can see two ways to capture the images>moving the camera via handheld or rail system or...
locking the camera down and changing focusing point via tethered software as in CamRanger.

My software of choice remains PS CC for the assembly process but...I'm having difficulty with artifacts in the assembled image.
Question is...which capture technique would serve me better and...is there better blending software than PS CC?

Re: Macro stacking questions

Not sure that it makes a huge difference either rail or focus ring. If you want to try other dedicated stacking applications then two main contenders
