I had originally hoped to get into the Barton Garnet Mine to shoot a macroGigaPan of the famous Gore Mountain garnets, but unfortunately I was a little too early in the season. The garnets at the locality featured here are from a now-abandoned garnet mine in the area that is currently located on state lands. The garnets here aren't as huge as at Gore Mountain, but they're nothing to scoff at.
I shot this GigaPan with autofocus on. I was going to take this into Photoshop to clean up the out-of-focus areas at the margin between the outcrop and the distant trees, but I in the end I decided it just wasn't worth the effort at this time, because that's really not the most interesting part of the image, anyhow.
The unusual arc of the stitched image is likely the result of inaccurate leveling of the Epic100 robot. That's due to the fact that I had to take the robot off the tripod and place in on a rough rock surface and hold it in place by hand in order to get the correct angle perpendicular to the face of this outcrop.
