The view down the long axis of Glastonbury Abbey Church.

I may post an improved version of this later - I took three images per shot to use a noise reduction technique, but I need to sort out some software issues first.

It's noticable that only the tallest sections are truly in focus... zoom in too far on the near or far sections, and things start to get fuzzy. This is a limitation of standard gigapanning technique. There is a way round it, but I'd have to shoot the scene three times with different focuses (which means three panoramas with this camera / scene, basically) and pre-process the images before stiching. Maybe some other time...
