A 360 degree panorama of Caballete, a Late Archaic (3,000-1,800 B.C.) site in the Fortaleza Valley, Peru. The picture was taken from within the middle of the main plaza in order to capture the U-shaped layout of the site with its monumental architecture on three sides.

    In retrospect, this was clearly too many photos for a beginner. The GigaPan took nearly 3 days to stitch and there are issues with the rainy conditions. Furthermore, just under halfway through the panorama the "button pusher disconnected" so I had to finish it manually as the machine moved up and down.
