    Looks like "more bars in more places"

    I love this gigapan - although it's a photo, it looks so surreal, with the intense colours, hardly any humans in sight in spite of the enormous buildings - it's so raw, so 'structured', and so 'cosmic'

    To Castillonis: This was shot with a Celestron C90 1000mm F11 telescope mounted on a heavy telescope tripod with vernier altitude and azimuth controls. Positioning was done manually using those controls. As to vibration control, I was using a mirror-up delayed shutter feature on the camera and sensor displacement image stabilization.

    Which lens and camera did you use? Did you use a robot or take the photographs manually? I can probably help you get a better stitched image. I don't know how to deal with vibration at that focal length. I would be interested to hear how you tried to minimize lens movement / vibration.

    Your gigapans just get more and more remarkable. I'll forgive your not including the Space needle, though I almost didn't recognize the Emerald city without it.
