  7. 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.
  8. 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 )
  9. file is 980mb will try a smaller size
  10. Just trying a new lens, an Otomat 20mm f2.8 stacked image of 112 pics
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 217 image stack of a Red soldier beetle Rhagonycha fulva
  14. JamesT, yes, it would have been the whole fly, this is a hard crop of the stacked image.
