Is the sky the limit?
What you see above is the largest true-color photograph of the night sky ever created, shot by 28-year-old amateur astrophotographer Nick Risinger using six astronomical cameras. It’s not just the view of the sky from one location, but is instead a 360-panoramic view of the sky taken by trekking 60,000 miles across the western United States and South Africa starting in March 2010. The final image is composed of 37,000 separate photographs. - Check out the massive zoomable high-definition version of the photo here.
Top of the charts. A run-down of the current size leaders of ‘stitched together’ shots to form one image is available on: en.wikipedia.org - with animage of Shanghai weighing in at 272 Gigapixels.
Released yesterday was a 268 Megapixel image made by the OmegaCam which combines 32 separate CCD sensors as one which creates this massive single shot.
Were you there! 360cities recently shot a massive panorama at Wembely Stadium at the FA Cup Final. The great thing about this image is you can visit the wembley360 website and tag yourself and your friends via facebook.
