My cam (Fuji fine pix S304) simply isnt suited to taking pics of this sort as you can see from the over exposed out of focus white blob [:(]

my new desktop, cracking pic what camera did you use?
Hi Kirade, I took the pic with my Canon 300D using a Sigma 70-300mm DG Macro lens.

Is this any good Tabs? This one has not been sharpened or anything, so you may want to run it through photoshop.

My first couple of shots were like yours Paul, so i just shortened the exposure time.

Thanks for the comments.

Funny i tried the same thing tonight!

I didnt tinker around too much tho and should of used my camera, as it werent 'alf shaky at 12x zoom!!

I was amazed when i got them on the PC, as like yours, the detail is amazing.

Hi Kev
Just suggestions for future ref. For a start use 400 ISO that will give you an extra 2 stops to play in shutter speeds, 1/10 of a sec is slow enough to make the pic looks a little soft, due to the rotation of the earth, coupled with the magnification of the lens.
You also dont need an aperture fo f20, something nearer 5.6 or 8 will be fine.

Here's my attempt [:$]

Erm, ISO 100, F8.0, 1/10, 190mm, ND8, wrong white balance hence a blue moon (?[:S]),
and two things are clear: (1) I ain't got nuff zoom and (2) the startling difference in low
level output between my LCD and CRT is beginning to irritate me. One of them is wrong,
or they are probably both wrong but one of them much more so than the other. I'm going
for a walk...

P.S. I tried to tart it up with some illumination effects as well.
