This is a portion of a larger Gigapan I shot yesterday (8/23/2011) -- a view of the Empire State Building from the roof of my office.

About half-way through the 7.5 hour shoot (with 7300 images), the earthquake everyone on the east coast was talking about shook our building. I think you can see a slight curvature in the Gigapan as a result of earthquake moving.

The Gigapan software was unable to stitch the entire 7000 image panorama together, as it ran out of RAM about 12 hours into the stitching process. The machine I am stitching it on is a dual core AMD with 6gb of memory.
