So with a Canon MP-E 65, I can manually focus the first shot, then Remote will work with the rail to set up the shots? If so, even though the MP-E 65 is an all manual lens, will Remote be able to determine depth of field, and other parameters needed? Thanks.

Is that conclusion limited to my specific example of a manual focus lens and rail with Focus software or does it apply for any use of a rail with the Focus software, including with auto focus lenses?
DOF calculator only works when you use a lens for moving focus point. It should be disabled with Stackshot to avoid confusion, we'll do it for the next version. You can use hyperfocal distance calculator to calculate DOF in millimeters. Then you can go to Settings -> Stackshot and set step size to, say, 1 mm. Now you can use the number obtained with hyperfocal distance calculator to set the appropriate interval between shots. For example, you've calculated DOF to be 5 mm at closest point, and you've set 1 mm step size in the settings. Then you should set interval between shots to 5 steps, which will result in 5 mm.
