best controller for THK KR2

I recently purchased a used THK KR rail. I already own a complete Stackshot system (though it mysteriously failed a few days after I bought the THK -- jealousy??), but I would like to purchase a second controller so I can have two complete systems. I also have my sights on a 50x Mitutoyo (one of the...

Re: Stackshot gone south?

Reset performed: no luck. As soon as I connect the cable from the SS controller to the rail, the red trigger light comes on and I lose all control over the camera. Same thing happens when I connect the controller to the THK, so therein lies the source of the problem.

Stackshot gone south?

I'm writing here because Cognisys support is closed for the weekend. Out of the blue, by which I mean it worked yesterday but not today with no changes in anything, my SS is exhibiting unusual behavior. When I turn it on, the red Trigger light goes on by itself, and when I plug the cable from the co...

Ahhhh. That may be true. I do have the Laowa and might try that, or maybe it's time to try video.

In-camera stacking with D850 - looking for tips

I'd like to try some stacking using the D850's in-camera stacking feature and wonder if anyone has some tips - I'd like to use a 10x objective and assume I should use a step-width of 1 (the smallest value), the longest interval between shots (expressed as 3 or 5 fps), and the same (approximate) numb...

Yes, this is the one I own(ed) - a small device that has an eyepiece and an F mount. But I returned it because I had been under the impression that I could actually take photos with it.

Lens scope converter?

Picked up a Nikon lens scope converter on an impulse - not much info on it here. Does anyone have any usage tips or best practices recommendations? Thanks for any feedback.

Thanks for the replies. I saw their other products, but have only spoken with one person who owns any of them. The forum looks great, but it is entirely in German, which I don't speak.

Stonemaster Stackmaster

Did a search and only found only one mention here to the Stackmaster rig (from 2017). Has anyone used this system and if so, any comments or critiques?
