Canon G9 + Gigapan Epic


This 360-degree panorama was shot from my back yard in Arizona Sky Village in Portal, Arizona. Cave Creek Canyon figures prominently in the view of the Chiricahua Mountains. My home and astronomical observatory are also visible. Arizona Sky Village is a dark sky community for amateur astronomers. It offers spectacular views of the Milky Way at night.
