Extreme macro with 40D

Not posted for quite a while but still enjoying my macrophotography. Recently been playing with some extreme macro with my 40D using a microscope 10X objective mounted on a body cap on 75mm of ext tubes. This gives exactly 10:1 magnification (FOV width = 2.2mm), no vignetting but rather shallow DOF making focus stacking stacking rather a necessity.
