The use of hyperasymptotics (H) and the Weniger transformation (WT) has been proposed, in a joint fashion, for decoding the divergent asymptotic series generated by the steepest descent on a wide class of saddle-point integrals evaluated across Stokes sets [R. Borghi, Phys. Rev. E 78, 026703 (2008)]. In the present sequel, the full development of the hyperasymptotic-Weniger transformation (H-WT) up to the second order in H is derived. Numerical experiments, carried out on several classes of saddle-point integrals, including the swallowtail diffraction catastrophe, show the effectiveness of the second-level H-WT, in particular when the integrals are evaluated beyond the asymptotic realm.
