I bought a new Digital Still camera (Canon SD850 IS) which has a super cool mode called "Stitch Assist" This makes it easy to take several pictures and later stitch them into one large panorama. Photoshop CS2 (and maybe older versions) has a feature to automatically combine several photos into a panorama image.

I made one of the E launch, Edwards launch, and the Oak Tree LZ at Elsinore. I plan on making one for every site I fly at, these are super cool and I would encourage you guys to make one for your flying site. They maybe they could be included in the wiki site guide :goodidea:

see attachments, the images are kind of large

Hey Dave,

Good job man, nice photos. I think including those in the site guide would be pretty cool. You've got 12 hours! :thumbsup:

It's possible we will have another gathering there over Labor Day. Mark your calendar.

I love Panos!

I've been doing panos since the 70s, when I used scissors and tape to stitch images together.

Being a Photoshop user since 1989, I started doing digital panos in the early 90s.

I have a bunch that I'll try to dig out.

More recently, I'd snag flickr and webshots images from other people whenever I saw something that looked like I could stick it together.

Here's and unknown photog's group of McClure images that I put together.

Here's one of 6k launch in Maui from August that I shot, about 130 degrees. The angles are very deceiving sometimes
