This is a 360 panorama I took at Anza Borrego park in the early evening after doing the gigapan.org/gigapans/70301/ I stood near my car, thinking I was there for the whole exposure, but it seems I misjudged things and I appeared as a kind of ghostly character. I was amazed at the amount of light coming from the horizon - the loom of lights from Brawley, San Diego, Palm Springs, and more.

Taken with a Canon 7D on a Gigapan Epic Pro mount, 24mm 1.4 lens at 1.6, 13 seconds, ISO 3200. 10 columns and 2 rows.

    Thanks for the info. I am a little surprised because I assumed equatorial mounts and the like would have been involved. It's good to know you can get enough starlight with only a 15 second exposure (and an f/1.4 lens - gulp). Incidentally, would you care to geocode this cool image? Don't forget to check the "Share with others" box :-)

    I think I was using a Canon 7D with a 24mm F1.4L lens, shooting two rows of 12 images. Not sure of the exposure, but it was probably something like 15 seconds at ISO 800 at F 1.8 or so. I think I used Autopano Giga to stitch it, due to Gigapan stitch's problems in dealing with stars... this is probably why it doesn't show stitching notes. This reminds me that I need to get out there again this winter...

    Nice shot! I would be very interested to know how you took this. Equipment? Exposure times?
