Lessons learned:
1) Remote release is 100% a must
2) I don't need a billion different frames
3) I need to shoot around F8
4) Zerene Stacker is what program I'm going to use
5) Not a chance in Hell I'll be able to do this outside if there is ANY wind WHAT SO EVER.

Thanks for looking.

I think those look great Garret. Don't do this type of thing so can't offer any input.

Great first try, well done.

The lessons you learned are the same I learned but with no success whatsoever so far. Maybe it is the outside thing.

Thanks guys. I got my wireless remote yesterday (or day before) so yesterday I did go hunt some bugs and brought them into the studio for a 2nd stacking attempt. I'll be posting the results later today after I'm done editing. I have a bunch of storm images to go through as well.
