Here's a couple of items of interest for image processing:

1) You are not moving the image by 1/100 pixel -- you are increasing your
measurement uncertainty by 1/100 pixel.

2) *ALL* image interpolation methods introduce non-physical artifacts.

For your particular case, I recommend that you hike across the street and talk
to Bobby Hunt (hunt@ece.arizona.edu). He could give you some suggestions on
what to do with your data.
