This panorama is published in full resolution (3,3 Gigapixel). It was captured using a Fuji S3, Nikkor 70-300@300mm and my trusty Gigabot. Shooting the 788 source images took 1 hour. Stitching was done with PTGui in 100 slices (see slicer tool) to increase render speed and minimize needed disk space.
On the upper left corner you can see a small black square. The size of this square represents the size of one source image. This should give you an impression about how small the individual photos actually are.
