The Naica Cave or la Cueva de los Cristales Gigantes.
Located next to a mine in the town of Naica, Chihuahua in Mexico.

Although not created using the Gigapan Imager (we only had the beta version at the time and we were worried the 90% humidity of the cave would damage it) we thought it desereved to be showcased here.

The cave is inaccessible to the public, please enjoy the image.

The stitching is not perfect, but we think its worth while to post.

    Ever since I saw the first surface GigaPans in Naica I've been expecting this one. Congratulations on an excellent image. I know this one's going to get a lot of mileage in my geology classes. Thanks!
