Notes

These images are multi-shot panoramas, typically 120° wide × 38° vertical

They were assembled from 6−8 rectilinear images, shot in portrait-format and aligned using a nodal rail, detent rotator and monopod. The individual shots were then “stitched” to create cylindrical partial-panoramas @ 170 MPixel in size.
