Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try this set of settings:

Manual mode

aperture f2.8 1/250

ISO 64

Set to take 37 shots

Focus step width: 1

Interval 7 seconds ( to allow the R1C1 to keep up)

Exposure smoothing off

Silent Photography off.

That is what one user of the Nikon camera model you have said his settings were to produce a set of photos, which he later focus-stacked using Helicon Focus. (For which, see

http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconsoft-products/helicon-focus/ )

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!

If you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond.

Thanks.
