    You know, I'm not sure I have uploaded the right image? I thought it was 4Gpix which this one clearly is not. I will have a rummage for other versions soon. (I now have 3 computers with 13 cores and 12 hard disks and I tell you - I can never find *anything*.)

    Of all the photographs I have taken in England, two of my most favorites, taken with a Nikon Coolpix 5000 what seems years ago; one of the interior of Bath Abbey and the other, from where you are standing in this GigaPan of Bath Abbey in dense fog early in the morning with the street lamp on the left to the right at the same point you GigaPan ends. The bottom line is ... that Bath has to be the most photographic city in all of the UK and your large collection of panoramas make a definite impact on that collection. Everytime I see a new GigaPan of Bath, my desire to come back gravitates more strongly. This new one of the Abbey almost broke the meter :)

    My favourite view of the abbey is when it is on a packet of biscuits made with cream and butter (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/13019/snap shots/35970/ :-) but I think jhoin's night shot of the abbey is also good: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/1080/

    It is noteworthy to compare your previous GigaPans of this area with your most recent effort: Bath Abbey From Colonade; www.gigapan.org/gigapans/3762/ and Sophie Ryder in Bath; www.gigapan.org/gigapans/29567/ are two that come to mind as there may be more, but to my eye, these two and the current one really demonstrate how different this area can be at any time during the daylight hours and at any day during the year (i.e., weather and quality-quantity-angle of sunlight )

    Because it was hard enough to get the thing to focus with a non-zero depth of field and be vibration-free at 400mm. It is a *very* delicate operation, even with the Pro imager. In theory I can go to 1000mm (1680mm at 35mm equiv) with the teleconverter but I can't imagine where I might use it as things stand. Getting the weight distribution more central might help but that means redesigning the Pro's bracket.

    Was this taken with your Sigma 50-500mm "bazooka" gigapan.org/conversations/128009/? If so, why not zoom all the way to 500mm?
