Menefee Mountain In Southwestern Colorado USA
I hiked up from the highway but the Gigapan shutter plunger fell off in my truck. I ended up pushing the shutter by hand . I had seen alot of deer tracks on the way up and a few to many mountain lion tracks. Toward the end of the shoot I saw a large mule deer buck and was disappointed when I realized that he wasn't going to be in the pan. I got home and was pleasantly surprised to see I had caught some anyway. I must say that that this Gigapanning is great fun. It a new answer to the age old question "Why does a man climb a mountain?"
Happy Hunting

    The Elk have managed to elude over 400 viewers. Yes I wiil admit that they are a little blurry. But, let me assure you there are elk in the photo. For those of you that don't know what an elk looks like lets take a look at this gigapan gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=5428

    I had a feeling it would be something like that. I've been looking around the house for some tinsnips and my childhood Meccano set. :-) If only they had put the actuator servo on the end instead of the front... Thanks.

    I modifided my gigapan beta with a thin steel plate. The plate is about 3"x 4" I mounted the plate with 2 screws to the gigapan plate I then drilled a hole about 1 inch back from the existing groove and about 1 and 9/16" from were the plate is attached to servo. I am amazed how well the fuji s1000fd works for gigapanning and wish you luck with yours

    Bill, how did you attach your S1000fd to the Gigapan? (I presume the Epic?) Did you build some sort of adapter or did you just lash it up with tie-wraps :-) ? Graham (gtoal@gtoal.com Will open in
