Default One pano in three projections

This is one image in three projections. The top is a standard 360x54 degree cylinrical, the lower two
are the output of the Panorama Tools remap plug-in from PSpher to Fish Eye Vertical. The left circle has the
sky at the center, the right has the sky on the outside.

Bit silly, but I like it.

Very nice work, Bill. I think the time has come for you to write your own pano program, or at least a book or an e-book with tutorials. I think you have more of a sense of what can be done with the pano concept than most pano people!

Ever think of hooking a telescope up and doing detailed moonscapes?

Thanks for the kind words Walter, but I'm not likely to do either of those.
I'm not interested in learning enough modern programing techniques to do
the programing and I am not capable of writing well enough to do a book
or more than a short note/tutorial.

My camera (Casio 3000) isn't really any good for digiscoping - the lens is
to large. That makes it better for low light: one of those many trade-offs in
photography. I have used a Celestron 8 with my old Nikon SLR with fair results.

Not likely to be getting another camera for a while - gonna be busy
building our retirement log house for the next year or so. The pile of logs in
the pano below is what our house looked like a couple of weeks ago.

Bill, I, too have enjoyed your panos. I usually don't cruise the pano/stitching forum, but when I see your name or WalterK's, I have to stop by for a treat. My only question is, on the circular panoramas, how do you decide which way is up? :lol:

Hadn't thought of that. I suppose it depends on where you stand when
you look at them - inside or outside the image.

Love your pano shots

Wish I could do them, I made a couple of attempts (without a tripod but on a flat, level surface) and they didn't turn out too well...

lighting issues and stuff, used a 2.1MP digicam but fun to try anyway.

Tomorrow when I am picking up new NiMH rechargable batteries at work I'll take a peek at the tripods we sell too
