Why is this focus stack failing?

Hi Folks,

I am trying my hand at toy photography. I have this model of the Starship Enterprise that lights up and I thought it would be fun to try.

I shot it with a Sigma sd Quatro h and a t-moount soligar 135mm lens. I have t-mount extension tubes and I used a manual rail for the steps.

What you see is a middle of the stack shot, and the output of enfuse from panotools. Zerene looks much the same.

So the nice little squares of light in the middle stack are rounded and distorted in the stack. Also the dome light has turned green.

I suspect I could do better manually, but have never tried that before.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Stacked via Enfuse
