There does seem to be a sweet spot with the quantity of images. I tried six and CS5 got confused and couldn't blend out the blur so resorted to blending everything. I got a mess.

I've subsequently tried three and four images which worked perfectly. Perhaps my six image is my fault...either way, great technique that can go into my bag of tricks.
