The first seamless medium format panorama ever taken at Tikal and probably one of the first 70mm panoramas of a Maya ruin.


This is a small jpeg of the file used to make the QTVR movie. Before compression it was around 3 Megs and about 2400 pixels wide. The white border is not part of the file.




The camera that took these pictures, a Seitz Super Roundshot 70 seamless panorama system, is capable of doing a complete 360 degree panorama but there were too many trees behind the setup that it was deemed more appropriate to limit the panorama to about 170 degrees.
