Test shot of computer component

This page carries on from Coin test focus stacking Mk II.

Here is another test photograph that I have taken with my new focus stacking rig. It was stacked from 732 images, which were each taken at 1.6 second exposure, at x4 magnification, and 10 micro metres apart as the camera moved towards the subject. Only natural light was used. The images were stacked using Helicon Focus. 

The subject of the photograph is a small computer component that I cut out of my old flatbed scanner. 

This is the item photographed using a Canon Ixus camera. 

Here are some of the slices that were combined to make the image:

This is continued at 10x magnification with a teleconverter
