    You could try combinezp for focus stacking as its free and see how it works.

    I am currently looking at making a focus rail but as I do not have a macro lens it is not urgent!

    The areas in focus look very sharp for that setup - I may look into this more as it would be cheaper than buying a new lens!

    You can slide the camera on a flat surface and get good results ...

    That macro unit looks a bit flimsy Frank - I love the example with 4 screwed together; how much vibration would you get there!

    This looks like a great deal. I won't get the one I said.

    Thanks again
