Did you download and inspect the full size image at 100%? The full size image looks clean to me, no indication of motion problems. In the rear tile alone there are echoes with one antenna, but that does not appear in the assembled pano. I think some of the reason is the detail being captured, at fu...

You should use Helicon for your stacks, it allows retouching of the stack so you can override the algorithm with a brush (painting in the area from the right shot you want) in places like that. https://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconsoft-products/helicon-focus/ I do have Helicon and use it for my stack...

It's beautiful but can we the see the high res finished product somewhere? Let's see if this works: https://flic.kr/p/2herT32 Absolutely lovely, the lighting for butterflies under flash is hard to get right and look natural. It's one of those photos where the detail on the scales and such is so fin...

The Olympus MC-14 Teleconverter with the Olympus 60mm 2.8

Over and over I have looked online to see if there is a way to pair the two. I use the 60mm macro lens about 3 hours each day to get amazing macro shots when combined with some combination of (1) kenko extension tubes (2) Raynox 250 (sometimes two of them) and (3) the Raynox 202. Over and over I am ...

Re: Eastern Tailed Blue Butterfly - only 9mm total length

I took this image with my Olympus EM1 mark 2, 60mm Olympus macro lens and two Raynox 250s combined. I took one of the front of the butterfly with antennae visible, and one of the main portion of the wing with the back orange pattern visible. I then stitched two images together to make the panoramic...
