Stitched Panorama


this planets was done using sigma 4.5mm lens, the first circular fisheye for apsc format, and a canon 60d. For the complete panorama. After some testing i found the best way for my purposes, 3 shots at approx 120° from one to another, taken flat. Sometimes remains a little area uncovered at zenith or nadir, but for stereographic projections it's not a problem. the only thing you must know before shooting is if you want to do a miniplanet or a tunnel, so you can shot pointing a little bit down or up for cover what you need. For the planets here, for example, i shooted a little bit pointing down (just 5-10°) so i obtained all the floor, and only a little bit of sky uncovered (unused in this kind of projection)
