Flower cluster about 15mm diameter. Stacked with Zerene DMAP. 1:1 macro f/5.6 with 150um steps. Tried lighting with two bare fiber lights, but it was awful. For this attempt, I taped a large cylindrical piece of paper to each light--big difference.

Lol! Thanks Mike. I wouldn't have thought to build a stacking rig if it wasn't for you.

Wonderful! The 20x one is great, now use 1um/step Smile You'll see how stunning the difference is, it's already really nice.

Smashing! The second one in particular. I reckon 2 micron steps would make even better though...

Thanks for the comments and for the suggestion to decrease the step size. I would really like to try it again, but the plant I have access to is in the fruiting stage so the flowers are all bunches of fuzz.

I'm blown away by the intricacy and colors of the macro world. These flowers look rather drab to the naked eye, but with some magnification, they are shown to be amazing.
