Very small moth, probably no more than 3mm x axis, and it almost filled the 6d (fullframe) frame/sensor. So I think it would be 10:1. The objective I used was a Nikon 10:1 attached to a Raynox telephoto as a tube.

Really nice work! I've wanted one of those automatic rails for stuff like this for a long while. I've done some manual ones but really fine stuff like this is hard to achieve when you've got to put your hand on the device to turn it yourself.

Thanks for the comment. They're becoming far more affordable, and the software to control them is pretty good. I use Zerene Stacker to operate the camera/rail so it's a touch-free positioning process. 8 micron makes manual positioning impossible! Another aspect worth mentioning is vibration. At 10:1 a car passing in the street with the teenage-driver's newest low-frequency hit booming from the sound system is enough to set the whole model into sympathetic vibration. As a matter of fact, anyone with a d-cup or above in the same room is a definite no-no.
