I know about Autostakkert for video, but when you take photos through a MICROSCOPE, even if through a Stereo, they are still 2D. Is there any stacking software that will allow the combination of multiple photos taken at different DOF?

Thank You. The second looks like a good one. The first one won't work because I don't have a trinocular head and I can't find a way to take pictures through the eyepiece tubes without doing it afocally.

  Have you tried using a plenoptic camera?  If would acquire (in a single shot) images at multiple FOVs that could be stacked in post processing.  This way you would not need  to take individual pictures at each of a multiplicity of FOVs

Has anyone tried using a step motor to incrementally record the layers to achieve stacking?

If so, what did you use?

 

I have a spare ZWO EAF (electronic automatic focuser). I figure with an ASCOM driver I could incrementally step through each focal plane to obtain images for stacking. The EAF could be connected to the focus knob- similar to that of a telescope.

Any suggestions?
