Recommendations for manual stacking software?

I am looking for a good stacking software that will allow me to manually drag and correct the drift of each image, unfortunately deep sky stacker may not be smart enough to recognize when I reset the alignment of my scope in the middle of a photo session. I do have photoshop if that helps, all reccomendations appreciated!

For a manual stacking program it's very hard to beat nebulosity- you pick manually the same star to align to and this works well.

Pixinsight is a better routine and will manage to stack your images but at a higher cost

DSS should be able to do this.

DSS should manage but I never got good results with it so quickly switched to nebulosity and now pixinsight

I highly recommend Nebulosity for manual stacking.
It gives much better results than DSS IMO.
See Dion's excellent tutorial here at the Shed.
