Precisely.

The point being that you, as the processor, have the ultimate control in the amount you wish to show through each layer.

Using "HDR" routines leaves everything up to the software with very minimal input on your part.

Furthermore, learning layer masking in Photoshop will open doors to you in all kinds of image processing, not just astrophotographic.

I'm a bit of a zealot in this regard. I hate to see people spend thousands of dollars on hardware, only to let software let them down. Software should not be a weak link in the image capture and processing train.
