Super Hero And All Round Good Guy
Yup a 8 inch Meade LX90 with eyepiece mount.
I don't focus stack, I haven't got a decent tripod so I take all my photos hand held with flash. I very rarely photograph dead creatures (which seems to be the norm with focus stacked bugs) as I think photos of critters are more interesting if they are doing something. Even if it is just looking at me as if to say "bugger off you annoying little git! "Fantastic shots snowy
Are you focus stacking at all or do you have a setup that just gets the shots at the right moment? Thinking about it I'm guessing the compositon and shot angle is the key with your work...side on profiles, opposed to shooting 'down' the subject?
Either way, having such a shallow DOF can be a right pain in the arse with macro work, I'm sure!
