Night photography 360 panorama: Classic motorcoaches under the moonlight

A 360º full moon night panorama shows a collection of classic motorcoaches awaiting restoration in Northern California. Cars and trucks speed by on Highway 5 in the background.

This full moon 360º night panorama is composed of 4 shots around with a Canon 8-15mm f/4L fisheye lens at 8mm on a Canon EOS 60D. I used a Really Right Stuff PG-02 Pro Omni-Pivot tripod head on a Gitzo 3541XLS tripod. Three shots were taken at each camera position, and blended with Exposure Fusion in PTGui Pro. Hours of testing and calibration of the pano head paid off, as I achieved the elusive PTGui rating of too good to be true when I stitched the pano. Not bad for an image that was made at 3:12 a.m.! Many thanks to the owner of this facility for kindly allowing some full moon freaks to photograph in his wonderful yard.

    • Thanks, Dave! No snakes, but I did get about 50 mosquito bites on my hands, even with DEET bug spray. Did I mention the black widows?
