If your Canon 100 is internal focusing (does not get physically longer when focused closer), then you can use its internal motor to make stacks of moderate depth. See http://www.photomacrography.net/forum/v ... hp?t=14569 for an example and some discussion of the limits of this approach.

Thanks Rik -

Sounds good - It is internal !! I hope to hear from the Nikon people at the local suppliers (IMP) tomorrow - I sent them an email late on Friday.

Hold thumbs for good news from them re objectives. With the Canon MP-E costing aboy 12,000 I should have room to wiggle, and maybe get a better result even as your atricle showed.
