What a difference the camera makes. This is basically the same view as the first photo, but with a slightly different perspective in order to avoid having the camera look directly into the sun.
Hardware was the gigapn head, modified slightly so that the E510 fits. The L-Bracket I'm using is too heavy (it's a thick piece of aluminum) and I'll have to make a proper bracket so that I can use the tele kit lens. I had this on at first, but the mass was too great for the gigapan head. :-( The shutter finger was mounted with a piece of velcro on the front of the camera, but that is too insubstantial and I had to hold the finger in place. Will have to work on a proper system.
Camera is the Olympus E510 with the "standard" kit lens set at 42mm, aperature of f9.5, with shutter speed of 1/180th s. Manual exposure, manual WB, manual focus just like you're supposed to do. That makes ALL the difference in the results, especially compared to the last one I did.
What didn't work well is the sky. The contrail didn't drift *that* much, but the Gigapan stitcher still has problems here.
