Looking east towards the Rice University and Texas Medical Center skyline from north of Rice Stadium. Not bad for an inexpensive camera having a 10x optical zoom, and comprised of 598 photos.

Two Notes: The heat in Houston has been unbearable and the last robot-GigaPan that I took was one month ago of Amy and the Fossils, www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=25162. This GigaPan was taken when the ambient temp was 100 F. Where I was standing, it was greater, but I survived and it was a reliefwhen I left Rice to have seen the run-a-way water main, www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=27494.
Also of note, the view we now see in this panorama is lacking the large number of cars in the parking lots and the next time we get a clear view may be during Christmas although that is iffy since some or many may be leaving their cars on campus and flying home for the holidays, but the campus is always safe and this day was no excpetion as I saw *many* RUPD cars driving around as I was taking this GigaPan.
