Our rooftop is currently having its railings replaced, so I had to sneak up last night to catch this dreamy panoramic sunset.

I used my 105mm telephoto lens and shot a total of 42 overlapping images to make up this panorama photograph. Consequently, you can zoom in quite close and gain the benefit of this ultra sharp prime lens.

I was surprised how well Hugin compensated for my otherwise abysmal capture. Even using my dedicated panoramic head, I still couldn't get the camera level through its pan. My images were all tipped so far to the right, I was sure the stitching would leave gaping holes in my result. Fortunately, I provided enough overlap that Hugin could pull it off.

42 exposures, 48077 x 5459 = 262 megapixels, 1.27 GB LZW compressed TIFF, 210 degrees x 32 degrees FOV. Nikon D600 and Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR lens, each image exposed for between 1/5 second and 1 second at f/6.3, ISO 250. Panorama merged in Hugin using the Mercator projection, blemish removal in Photoshop CS6, final exposure adjustments in Lightroom 5.
