This image is taken from a point along the trail to the “M” on Cerro San Luis Obispo. Made from 888 component images, it is just over 180 degrees in sweep and is the most detailed panoramic photo I have ever taken.

California Polytechnic State University is visible on the extreme left, with its new Poly Canyon dormitories visible at the top. The famous Madonna Inn is near the lower-right of the image. In fact, the property from which the photo was taken is owned by the Madonna family, who allow public access to various trails on the lovely mountain.

From Daniel's Point (I named the location after my late friend Daniel Coudray) one can see almost every building and park in the city, including some rooftops in the Laguna Lake area over the saddle on the right. The downtown area is well documented here, with most buildings clearly identifiable.
