Approx. 3X, 63mm Luminar at f/4.5



Approx. 5X, Nikon CF N Plan Achro 4/0.13

I'm still struggling with keeping the vibrancy of iridescent subjects, while retaining detail after stacking.

I would interested to hear from the experienced 'stackers' in regard to this also.

I haven't worked much with subjects like this, and I'm having trouble imagining what's going wrong.

Can you say a few more words, and maybe post out some annotated images showing examples where vibrancy and/or detail get lost?

Thanks for asking Rik -

I'm losing resolution of detail, when compared to the individual slices, and losing resolution of color (posterization) when compared to the uncompressed image.

I'll post an image slice, and an uncompressed section of an image, if I have the time this evening.

Great 'abstract' shots there!
