Trapped a male house spider in the house (Tegenaria species) and it agreed to pose for some focus stacks using zerene stacker before I released it in a sheltered porch outside.

Thanks Lester - not sure if it had only just come into the house but it seemed remarkably dust free.

Excellent quality stacks. How many images did you need for that first one? And tell me how you like Xerene. Is it fairly easy to use? And if you don't mind, which version did you get? :)

Thanks :)

CL -#1 was a 6 shot stack.
Zerene is the best stacking prog I've used so farand very easy to use. There is actually no difference in the versions - just the pro version allows you to publish the photos which I sometimes do.
It still makes some mistakes but less than other progs and also is much better at aligning and keeping low contrast detail.

I have seen some stacks with a hundred or more images, and they looked almost real, even on my cheap monitor. It's amazing, some of the advances that have been made in just the 4 years I have been here. It's a great time to be alive. :)

The stereogram is great. What did you use to get that shot?

Thanks - it's two separate shot sequences with a bit of sideways movement between them so I was using my normal 5Dmk2/MPE-65/430Ex flash setup.

Thanks for the comments all,
Toby- think you may be right- found another male a few hours later unless the first one managed to come in via the cat flap :)
