    Great job! Could you please tell us how long it took to stitch it?

    @Castillonis - Many thanks for the helpful suggestions. I'll be sure to use them all when I take the "proper" panorama towards the end of the year :)

    I saw your video of the capture and I have two recommendations. One, is to use a circular polarizer. Two is to use a row pattern instead of a column pattern. The movements in pitch require the most settling time, so using a row pattern would only require pitch movements at the end of a row. Yaw movements require less settling time. At longer focal lengths enabling mirror flipup is also very beneficial.

    A truly amazing image to behold, however, the cynical side of me wonders, in the spirit of technical testing, how difficult it would be to infuse an in-focus image of foreground objects like the railing and balcony in order to render the image perfectly in an aesthetic sense.

    @germangonzalezgarrido - I know we've discussed this on the private messaging, but for the benefit of others: Photoshop wasn't involved in the process. Autopano Giga produced a .kro file, for which as far as I'm aware there is not a hard-coded pixel limit. This .kro file was then passed to the Gigapan Uploader which tiled it and uploaded circa 1,000,000 jpegs to the Gigapan servers.

    @dokteriq - As far as I'm aware, the Microsoft tools can't take a .kro file as a source. I did attempt to stitch this with ICE, but despite providing it with the matrix layout of the photos, it messed up the stitching. (I'll probably get in touch with the ICE guys and see if there's anything they can do to help, but I'm a bit busy with other things at the moment.)

    How did you generate a PSB file over 300.000px wide? I thought that the PSB limit was 300.000px!!!

    Very impressive. Just read an article about your work on Germany's biggest newspaper website! I like the depth of sharpness.

    *** ICE update *** Contrary to my earlier response to jdughi, ICE didn't crash - it gave an error code indicating it had run out of disk space (although I wasn't aware of this at the time). I'm re-running ICE with 2TB of temp space to see what happens.
