Microsoft Flight Simulator

Finally managed to get a decent balance of frame rate vs. visuals in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on my Quest 2, thanks to Virtual Desktop’s new custom OpenXR runtime and the performance improvements in the Sim Update 15 beta.

9V Battery

A little experiment with focus stacking. I used my 16mm macro extension tube and set focus bracketing on my camera to take 8 photos with different focus. Then I merged them together in HeliconFocus to get the entire battery in focus.

I tried using Photoshop to merge them first, but I think it needs more images with smaller differences in focus. HeliconFocus had much better results with this set of images.
