I thought this would have triggered some discussion on the technique used

The detail is amazing. Never really done macro work, but I can see the attraction. To be able to see what normally we cannot.

yep I am not into macro as well, it's just that I always try to understand the technique that other photographers use when I am attracted by their work. As I wrote in the article, the first photos like this were made by Suren Manvelyan, but when I asked him how he did it, he told me that it "was secret"

That is my usual reply when I capture a great photo by accident and cannot remember the settings I used.

I am not certain who deserves the most praise - you for your tenacity or your wife for her patience.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Great shots!
Did you use the TC with the tubes (in which case which way round) or just the TC for the last shots?
IIRC Extension then TC gives more magnification than the other way round...
