  3. Hatter, the yellow background is the out of focus part of the fly, this is the first picture using this lens and I was keen to see how well it resolved hence the head shot and not the the full body.
  4. Thanks everyone, interesting lens I used here, it was taken from a used Otamat portable microfiche reader, the guy selling these claims it will resolve up to 200 line pairs ( a good slr lens will resolve around 160 line pairs )
  5. finally got there 698mb!
  6. file is 980mb will try a smaller size
  7. Just trying a new lens, an Otomat 20mm f2.8 stacked image of 112 pics
  8. Spider found dead in the garden this morning, a stack of 117 images using a Vivitar 90mm macro on Fuji XT2 and 3x Godox 350f flashguns
  9. Clicker, Happy to oblige, the lens used for this image was a microtek film scanner lens rated 4000 di attached via helicoid to a Fuji XT2, the camera was mounted on a Wemacro focusing rail. I shot 217 compressed RAW images lit by 3 Godox 350mm flashguns, the subject was set and mounted on my xyzr displacement platform, the flash difuser I used was dome from a large led bulb. I use Helicon Focus stacking software 217 images at 45 micron steps, about 90 minutes and a futher 45 minutes for Helican focus to crunch them down to a single image, this is transferred to photoshop about another hour cleaning up the image, so around 4/5 hours for this shot, setting the fly can take quite a while to make it look natural . Simple really
  10. 217 image stack of a Red soldier beetle Rhagonycha fulva
  11. JamesT, yes, it would have been the whole fly, this is a hard crop of the stacked image.
  12. Classic error! run a stack of 215 and camera battery runs out at 48
  13. New light diffuser gives a slight blue cast but it works well.
  14. Clicker, it really is not difficult just time consuming, the rail and its software does its thing, the stacking software does its thing all I do is clean up the result ( Dam the secrets out )
  15. Devils Coach Horse - Rove Beetle
