This may be applicable--it actually deals with
fusion of many slightly translated images scanned at low res to
give a final high res image. (they took a bit of dollar bill at
200dpi, some 60 scans, to get a final image of 800dpi in this example)
Nonetheless, some of the aspects sound like they are similar.
