LOL sorry for those of you that I caught at breakfast
Billbo,, I use a Sigma 105mm macro lens for all my macro works,, an excellent macro lens BTW, optically very fine,, no stacking here or on any of my work, Ive seen some amazing stacks in other sites but never experimented with that, having to take numerous images at the same focal length and use different focal ranges sounds like alot of work to me while the end result is sometimes magnificent,, Have you heard of "LordV" he's a master at stacking and ULTRA close macros
