Description

Taken from the Observation platform at the top of Mount Washington, this is a fairly wide gigapan of downtown Pittsburgh at night.

Technical data from ExIf (partial):

Model - E-510
ExposureTime - 8 seconds
FNumber - 8.00

SceneCaptureType - Standard

Some frames show some blurring due to vibration problems on the Observation platform, which is cantilevered from the street and not perfectly dampened for vibrations. I was originally going to shoot at the upper station of the Duquesne Incline, but the observation point there has a very high fence that would have been a problem to deal with. All told, 300 picture input with 10 seconds between pictures (8 sec exposure, 2 seconds transition time to allow damping), 3000 seconds, 50 minute exposure time.
