    Hi - They come down like the wrath of the gods on anyone setting up a tripod up there, so I carefully balanced the kit on a GorillaPod DSLR unit (the biggest GorillaPod) which more or less worked. They did come over to take a look what I was doing and simply requested that I stay with my hand on the equipment at all times, as they hated running after anyone... :-p

    Very cool. The security guards didn't say anything to you about taking the Gigapan from there? I've thought about going up there and doing the same shot. Great work...
