Here is the last panorama I succeeded to stitch.
845 pictures taken manually with a NN5, my Canon 5D and a 300mm lens.
This is very impressive size for manual shooting. Did you shoot at 3.75 degrees or disengage click stops and manual reference the marks shooting at about (guessing here) one every 2 degrees left to right?
I have found when shooting large mosaics manually to do sequences of 10 images before brief pause. Also shooting manually gives great control for pausing to let planes fly into viewfinder or large objects to pass by.
First I used my excel spreadsheet (you can download it on my blog) to determine what was the right setup for at least 30% overlap.
Then I shot a picture every 2,5° using the marks on the head and a line every 5° (it took me 74 minutes).
Despite the many unsharp frames you used for the gigapan it is still an attractive image.
Can you tell the name of the city you shot the gigpan ? (the turkish names and text on the buildings and the many wifes with covered heads are all pointing to turkey but I am not sure which city).
