First try using microscope lens.. Thanks for your help

This is my first try in Macro and also a try using a microscope lens. The fly died at my feet so I took it as a sign to see if I could photograph it.

I used a 2x Achromatic lens with a cone adaptor to a Canon Bellows.

The Camera is a Canon T1i connected to a StackShot extended rail.

I used the 30 day evaluation software Zerene to take 180 photos of the fly. It was cleaned up in Photoshop.

The image was lit only with a desk lamp.

My next thing to do is to make a stable stand for my setup. The table I used is too unsteady.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
