GigaPanBot motorized pan/tilt ...


The Swiss Air Force demonstration at the Ebenfluh Shooting Range,
mostly referred to as Axalp because of the nearby village, is a unique possibility to see jet fighters doing live gun shooting. Together with the impressive scenery the demo is an experience that one will never forget.
The shooting range is located at an altitude of 7365 feet (2242m) in the middle of the Swiss Alps.
Most impressive show is always the life fire demonstration were 6 -8 F-5E Tiger II of Fliegerstaffel 8 (FighterSquadron8) fly a defined course on up to 4 different targets located around the spectator area. This is followed by a similar demonstration of F-18C Hornets. You can even see the fire at the target area!

    Hi Jason, thank you. Yes the GigaPanBot does recalculates the number of pictures per row depending on the tilt angle. This saves up to 40% pictures which are really not needed. For this panorama I used the lens at focal length of 25mm, so I needed 6 rows. I made another high resolution panorama at focal length of 110mm but that is not finished yet and also if I'm not satisfied with the result I'm not going to publish it. I'm using PTGui for stitching and Photoshop for post processing.

    This is outstanding! In GoogleEarth it's fantastic! And you have done a great job removing ghosts, etc . So technically and aesthetically an A panorama!!! Does your gigapanbot software take appropriately fewer photos at the top and bottom or does it function like the Gigapan, with just rows and columns in a grid (which takes way too many photos at the top and bottom on a high-rez shot)? How many photos was this composed, and what do you use to stitch?
