First proper test on my newly refactored stacking rig with a SK Apo-Componon HM 6.7/60 and Sony A6000.

160 photos at 0.035mm increments for a depth of field of 5.6mm and FOV of ~12mm (approx. 2x mag).

At 2 second intervals I completed this shoot in about 3 minutes. I might try pushing it down to 1 second intervals but the flash might not be able to keep up.

Subject is a long dead moth acquired from bugmaniac. I bought this back in the winter when there weren't too many living things out and about.

The Schneider lens seems to be giving you very good contrast and excellent sharpness. I think you have a winner here!

Thanks Leonard, I was also quite impressed! I had tried the Nikon Scanner Nikkor ED (7 element version) and some other lenses but I couldn't quite get the contrast I was after.
