I think it would actually, at this distance the DOF is extremely narrow. Having said that, I don't know that it NEEDED 61 images either. This is the first one I've ever attempted so to an extent I was just playing around with it to see what the result would be. I haven't done the calculations to know exactly how much stepping was needed. I may do it again lol. This is a new area for me.
Use this for total dof based on camera, distance and aperture.
