Another vote of thanks from me, Ken. I have only skimmed the document but it looks very good. Perhaps an array would be an interesting retirement project some day

One would think stacking stretches the whole image anyway.
It's not difficult to combine data from systems with different image scale and it can be useful to do so... more photons in total provides higher SNR. This makes it possible to stretch the data further revealing fainter features.
