Imaging software suggestions?

Post by ndemik »

I have a colleague who is gearing up for a bunch of ant specimen imaging. I've recommended he use Helicon Focus for the editing and merging of stack images, but I'm not sure what software program to recommend for taking the stack images, themselves. He'll have a good Leica scope with a lighting system and a digi cam mounted in the third ocular.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Helicon Focus comes with Helicon Remote utility which can remotely control Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras. This might be a good solution for your friend. This utility also will support external stepper drivers which will allow to automate stack shooting.
