Tarpon Springs is home to shrimp boats and sponge divers. The crew of this boat were preparing for a night of fishing.
This is protorapghed with the aid of the Gigapan Epic Pro robotic panoramic mount. Taken on my first day of beta testing this unit.
I used a 50-500mm Sigma lens on a Nikon D200. The lens was set at 300mm. The Gigapan unit was set to digitally fire the shutter (twice per frame, one for mirror lock up so that I could reduce movement, and one for taking the photo).
I am suprised to see the vingetting, I should try and correct that before sending the images to the stitcher.
The light was failing, so I opend up the lens as wide as it would go (f 6) and left the camera on manual focus and manual exposure. The depth of field is not large on a 300mm lens at f6.
I thought I had the rails on the unit level, but there is still some sawtooth on the edges so I really need to check that out better.
