About This Gigapan

This is the flight deck of the space shuttle Discovery during her decommissioning process in the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF). Several components are missing as part of that process including panels of switches, closed circuit TV (CCTV) screens, and storage lockers. During flight, the commander sat in the seat on the left and the pilot on the right. Hatches behind their seats lead below to the mid-deck. While in orbit, the rear windows looked out to the payload bay at any cargo operations while the windows on top usually gave a dramatic view of Earth far below.

If memory serves me correctly this was taken with a Canon S100 and its about 600 image in all.

Can we have some more technical detail, camera and lens etc.

as Jason Buchheim poiinted out, look at it it far mor impressive. I am only using this oportunity point out that GigPan viewer sucks for 360 panoramas. I posted this same comment on my own panorama, even wrote emails 2 YEARS ago to [email protected] and [email protected] and they said they understand my frustration. But still today (2 years later) the shame lame viewer is here. and I have not uploaded a pano since, though i do have plenty more on my disk πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

Impresive detail for such narrow place. Historic gigapan πŸ™‚ Please, tell us the tecnical details about the gigapan. Great job!!

This is an astounding panorama! Great job, I am very impressed. This looks great in a virtual reality Gigapan proxy viewer here

So glad someone thought of doing this before it was too late.

Absolutely amazing! What camera/lens did you use John? Thank you.
