    Too bad this site doesn't have a forum; that would be the perfect place for this. The GigaPan can make such huge panoramas because it makes a regular grid of captures. With this, the software doesn't have to guess so hard about what is where. If you have a tripod with angle markings on the pan unit, you can fake it with a DSLR that wouldn't fit the GigaPan. Take a row, turning a certain number of markings each time, go down a row, making sure you overlap, then take another row. The vertical spacing will be somewhat arbitrary but the horizontal spacing will be more-or-less even. Keep the tripod in the same position and shoot your details. Find where they fit in the original grid and replace the background with the details. Now stitch your panorama.

    Tom, this is really awesome. I really wish I knew exactly how to do this. I have a Nikon D70 with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and the Canon SX110, but here in Houston, we no longer have an amuesment ride like this, nor do we have a zoo as spectacular as your what is in your recent GigaPan. This too has been bookmarked.
