What is stacking?

The underlying idea is to get "deeper" depth of field than you can achieve just by stopping down and hopefully you can get much better overall quality at the same time.
A related approach is stitching in which frames of the same subject (taken to include different parts of it) are combined into a final image. This picture will have a wider field of view and at the same time, contain more pixels, than each separate frame.
Stitching and stacking can be combined, but this is cumbersome and time-consuming.

He also has written quite a bit on the subject and has some books available - for free - on his website.

Quite usually, it's the tone mapping that isn't to many people's tastes. The actual HDR before tone mapping isn't really visible, as it contains too much dynamic range for the current display devices.
