This was our first attempt using the new setup: lighting (Interfit Cool Lite 9), copy stand and Canon G11

This panorama was done as part of a larger collection digitization effort at the North Carolina State University Insect Museum, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF DBI-0847924). The purpose of this image is to enable virtual browsing of our research collection. The snapshot feature of this website allows for annotations of these images, including: taxonomic determination of specimens, suggested corrections, questions, and loan requests.

    @Castillonis: We just used the standard features/software from the camera to take this panorama. We still have some tweaking to do, but for now this seems really promising...

    Wow! This is such an excellent close up panorama. Did you use the Canon focus bracketing or CHDK enhanced firmware focus bracketing? This is higher quality than I would expect. Excellent job : )
