I wasn’t even thinking of stacks … just grooving on the sensation of scuba diving among all those isidia, soredia, and special doodads to be found on the surfaces of these lichens at about 30x under the microscope.
Sounds labor intensive but the photos are beautiful! Could you post one for comparison that is not stacked?
I’ve got a photo of my ultra-high-tech setup on my summary page. I use CombineZP to combine 20-30 photos for each image. Time-consuming (mostly for the computer, though, not for me!), but the results — if I can prevent vibrations or drafts from moving the subject in the middle of a shoot — can be very nice. Still don’t get sharp details all the way down to the full resolution of the camera, but I learned a trick: reduce from 3600×2700 to 2000×1500 first then stack, and the results are much nicer, somewhat counter-intuitively. I’ll take something like 1000 photos one evening, then batch-reduce all the images and divide them into subfolders, then start a CombineZP batch job on all of them on my old (spare) laptop. Few days later, after it finally finishes, it’s like Christmas. :)
What is your set-up?
