Thanks for the tip. I'll try it this w-end.
I love the view looking out over the plain and lake below.
I'd be interested in seeing how these photos would stitch using Microsoft Research's Image Composite Editor.
If you're shooting a panorama from a single location, ICE can be a better viewing experience unless there's some different activity in different shots in which case a normal Photosynth may still win.
Panoramas stitched with ICE can be published to the Photosynth site and can be zoomed all the way into like all the normal photos here.
You can download ICE here if you're interested: http://bit.ly/microsoftice
