This is one of my larger spherical panoramas at 1.28 gigapixels, stitched from 865 photos (173 positions x 5 brackets). This is a downscaled version for the Oculus Rift. I took this from the peak of Heath Point overlooking Moose Cove in the Bog Brook Preserve. It rained for half an hour while shooting the sphere so I had to pause the sequence, cover everything up with my rain jacket, and resume shooting when it stopped. I didn't have time or battery power to reshoot the entire sphere, so I stitched it in spite of the few blending errors.
Shooting data: Nikon D700 & 24-70mm f/2.8 @ 70mm, f/13, ISO 200, and 5 exposures spaced 1.7 EV apart from 1/2500 to 1/25 seconds.
