Amazing detail!

Some of the best micro/stacked images i've seen are from a guy called `Lord V` (Brian) I think he also lives in your part of the country cybermystic. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lordv/sets/590338/
He uses Zerene stacker AND stacks by hand.
He even makes his own coke-can softbox/diffusers.

@ Bob Andersson.
Thanktou for those wonderful words of wisdom, I am not the brightest person here, So bear with me. I am just somebody who has just started photography as a hobby,How ever I would have liked a answer from cybermystic because the amount of work producing those great photos must have taken him a lot of time and effort, In the future I won't bother asking questions here for it will be easier to ask Goggle?
Or can I use your Quote to people who ask a question on this forum? :( :( :(

Hi blindasabat,

Sorry you feel that way. Note I didn't just say "Google it" - I provided you with a link to a Google search I composed for you and had already taken time to check that the first result gave you the answer you needed. So by any stretch of the imagination I went the extra mile. What was wrong with the Wiki article?

I have no idea why you are disparaging yourself so I'll now get on with my day. :evil:

Bob.

Apologies peeps I had lost/forgotten this one so hadn't seen the posts.
Not so time consuming to do this work really. I just put the object under the microscope, select a lens that best suits the object (usually the lowest power) and then manually move the focus through the object from top to bottom (or vice versa) in increments that will give a good focus resolution which usually means at least 50 shots. Download the 50 images to the computer and let Helicon Focus work its magic. Then take the image into Photoshop to clean and tidy up. I guess it takes about an hour per image overall.
Greg
