Other than Helicon Focus and PhotoAcute, are there any other focus stacking softwares you would suggest?

Well, there are plenty but after homeworks and testings,
I chose Helicon Focus and Helicon Remote.

And, IMO, it can do a terrible job at finding the areas in focus, if the images are challenging. I've not tried the software mentioned above, but I may at some point.

My last go-round, I brushed in via masks the areas that were in focus. Took a while, but the results are satisfactory.

You could always pick up one of those Nikon D850 and have focus stacking built into it.
