GigaPan Beta + Sony DSC-H7
This is the view from Crook Peak in the Mendips, looking across to Weston-super-Mare. As ever, wide fov images like this look best in GE.
Weston is actually hidden behind a hill and you can only see the outskirts, but capturing Weston was not the goal.
The goal was in fact to answer two technical questions: (1) how big can I make a pano? and (2) what is the view like from Crook Peak? The answer to the first question seems to be "at least 2.5Gpix" (I like this number) and to the second "well, it is a bit like this".
Sadly this pano has no extraordinary hats like this: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=11641.
I took a 360° from this viewpoint but sadly it didn't work out. A pity - you can see Glastonbury Tor quite clearly.
I am undecided about whether one can see Sand Point (www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=9016) in this view. I suspect one can't. Will update these comments when I have geocoded this pano more accurately and had a look in GE.
