Photo Stacking: The problem with photography through a microscope or macro lens is that the more magnified the object, the shallower the depth of field. This means that only a very narrow region of the picture will be in focus at a time. One solution for this problem is to take multiple pictures focusing on different parts of the object and then combine them with a program like Zerene Stacker.

Here is a crane fly taken with a microscope objective at the end of an adapter tube as the lens. This is a Zerene stack of 75 photos.
