Hello guys

I have just finished this shot today. It is a very small fly. I stacked a lot of shots in zerene. The photo is taken with my new lens Carl Zeiss planachromat GF 25x/0.50 corrected on Canon 200mm f2.8 L on EOS 40D.

Some members use a technique to reduce the sudden transition from in focus parts of the image to the out-of-focus areas. It is accomplished by stopping down an aperture for an additional 15-20 images. Is such an approach possible with your setup?

See morfa's post here: ... hp?t=11543

Also, have you attempted the sub-stack > combine, or the partial stack > merge method?

To use a classic quote from 'Antz' - "I almost know exactly what I'm doing!"
