I was trying to shoot a petri dish full of ooids with our GIGAmacro system. I had my field of view set correctly, so I don't have the faintest idea what happened to cause all those edge artifacts and general basket-weave appearance.

Happily, I did manage to get the ooids shot, as you can see here:

    Not familiar with the GIGAmacro system but it looks like the system was moving while the shutter was open?

Where in the World is this GigaPan?

Sorry, this gigapan has no location information.
