    scat fly

    JamesT, yes, it would have been the whole fly, this is a hard crop of the stacked image.

    scat fly

    Classic error! run a stack of 215 and camera battery runs out at 48

    Hardy fly

    New light diffuser gives a slight blue cast but it works well.

    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 )

    New lens

    Clicker + Bill, the lens is 16mm diameter fitted tightly into a c-mount adapter then mounted onto a helicoid and a 28mm extension tube all sitting on my Wemacro focusing rail, the fly is positioned on a piece of bark which is blu tac 'ed to my xyzr fine tuning placement platform. The fly is lit by three flash guns, the Janson led lights are there to illuminate the subject for focusing. The final picture was a stacked image of 174 images @ 55 microns crunched down with helicon focus software. The picture above lacked a lot of contrast initially so I made a deep lens hood flocked on the inside and I flocked inside the extension tubes this has improved the image quality. The resolution of this lens is claimed to be 3600dpi in reality its around 3250dpi my other scanner lens is over 4000dpi and is noticably sharper, tests of these lenses have shown that they're all apochromatic so no red blue fringing!

    Great video Fuji, think I'll stick to blue bottles though

    stacked fly, my eyesight is not as good as I would like, so I struggle to present these subjects the way they should. Well! Ebay to the rescue, dentists 3.5 magnifying spectacles just the job.
