Interesiting shot. Is it possible to focus stack?

I would imagine so if one has the proper software to do so. Thanks

Here is a wasp that is focus stacked. Over 25 shots to get it all in focus.

That is a nice image and very well composed I don't use any stacking software, though it would come in handy for some things that I do but most all of my subjects are "flighty" and if I am able to get one shot in I consider myself lucky, however for those utilizing the microscope it would be useful to a point. Light, like movement, is proportional to magnification, the higher the magnification the greater the movement and the more magnification the more light required to illuminate the subject being studied is just only one factor in 'some aspects' of microscopy. My interests are mainly scientific and not so much as for the easthetics of photography, yet both seem to end up going hand in hand.

Well Ken, I had a microscope until recently and always enjoyed seeing the hard to see. Getting a good photo can produce some vary artistic images. I think microscopy and photography do go hand in hand. A good shot of some fungii can be both interesting and beautiful. Im still waiting for my spirogyra. In high school I once made a model of a spirogyra. I received a score of 150 out of 100. The science teacher was so impressed with my model he gave me the extra 50 points and asked if he could keep the model, which he used in years thereafter as a teaching aid.

Nice work guys.

I always used to confuse spyrogyra with spirotagnew, never understood either of them.
