The Portland Timbers rolled past Chicago 4-2 in their first MLS home game in front of 18,627 at sold-out Jeld-Wen Field Thursday night. The constant rain that started hours before the game did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd, which was sent into a fever pitch with the pregame ceremonies that included fireworks, giant banners and the Timbers Army singing the national anthem.

Oregonian photographer Bruce Ely - www.bruceely.com Will open in a new tab or window/ - created this Gigapan during the Timbers home opener on April 14, 2011. The image is made up of 612 individual photos taken over a 45-minute span and stitched together to form one large image. The final high resolution picture is 122,832 X 39,472 pixels or 4,848 megapixels. The image is not supposed to represent one moment in the game. There are numerous stitching "errors". These are usually caused by a person that is partially in a picture moving to a different location by the time my camera made another pass.

    I am considering the purchase of this Gigapan Pro. I notice, when zoomed in close, that a lot of stitching issues are present. One of the security men standing to the left of the closest goal is cut in half....but this is throughout the pano. What software did you use to do this stitching.

    Nice Pano! I'm new in this of Gigapaning, and I'm wondering in this cases of a stadium if you use autofocus or manual? Thanks!
