Featured Image

Every month or so we like to post an image taken by one of our customers using our equipment. It gives you a great idea of what is possible with Cognisys gear. You can see more customer images in our focus stacking and high speed galleries. If you have an image you would like us to consider for this spot please send it to us at

Arthur J Crooks - Seeds a Plenty

This image of a dissected Poppy Head was captured by Arthur J Crooks using his StackShot Macro Rail. The image was captured with a Canon 6D using a 60mm lens with a 20mm extension tube installed. It is a stack of 29 images that was lit with LEDs. The camera was set to f/5.6 with an exposure time of 1/80. Many thanks to John for sharing the image!
