FRC 2009 robotics Championship in Atlanta.
This image was shot as the Einstein final was still setting up.

This is the first of 3 panos at this location. Others to be posted later.
I should have programmed the Gigapan to wait 4 sec between shots instead of 3. This would perhaps have allowed the autofocus to settle more fully in some shots where it appears to be blurry. Yes Gigapan recommends autofocus to be turned off for panos but this image has a great range of near/far distances and the fixed focus scheme would have compromised sharpness at one or both of the limits. See my picture from the bridge for evidence of near distance blurring as focus was set on the Fry's store in the far distance. .
When I have more time, I will preprocess some images that were blurred and "borrow" some sharpness from the overlap area of adjacent raw images that were sharp. I have 2 more similar images from the balcony later in the presentation when everyone was seated. These are from a better location and I will post these in the next week or so. They have some issues from a couple of missed images where the camera did not make the image for some unknown reason. To fix this, I can borrow from adjacent image overlap and/or use images form the other series at the same location.
See other shots by "Total Chaos" (Austin S.) who borrowed our Gigapan while in Atlanta.
