    I should try a similar shot from top of Milad Tower in Tehran, one day, when possible.

    Randy, awesome place to take a panorama from. I think I am jealous ; ) You will need to try this with an Olympus 4/3" system or a Canon Rebel Xsi. Did you use the button pusher?

Where in the World is this GigaPan?
