Recent shots using the 60mm macro and raynox 505 with MC-20
43

Using a PIXCO Brand extension tube, 16mm, you can attach the MC-20 (2x) teleconverter to the 60mm macro lens.  All you have to do is remove a millimeter of the plastic inside the cheap extension tube to allow the teleconverter lens to fit inside it.  Then, you are capable of using the 60mm macro lens and Raynox 505 to acquire 7.5x-9x magnification complete with the ability to focus bracket up to 999 images.  It really is quite an incredible setup - and I know I post a lot about it - but it excites me daily!  Here are a few recent samples for you all.

Each of these are focus stacks using Helicon which I feel is the best stacking software out there.  With a decent computer, these stacks of between 50 and 200 images take anywhere from 1-3 minutes.  That's it.  I will note that the same setup will work with the MC-14 teleconverter, just with a bit less magnification, but still significant when combined with the Raynox macro filters!
