This image was created by taking 8 rows of images at each of 38 points around the entire tower. We moved the tripod with the Epic Pro to each photo point and repeated the previous pano. I've been wanting to out this technique for years because there are often viewpoint on towers but there is no easy way to get a 360 view. It worked great and didn't take that long (<1hr). About 30s per set plus time to move the tripod, so about a minute per imageset.

Next up is to to repeat with a 500mm lens instead of the 105 I used for this one. This will be a significant undertaking because it will require more than 150 photo points around the tower. We are going to try and build a skateboard based system for the gigapan to sit on that will let us easily wheel it around the tower on the guardrail
