Panoramic Chicago Skyline 03 June 2007
Taking the opportunity of a free evening and promise of good cloud formations, I ventured out to the lakefront and took a great many shots of the skyline and met many nice people. I had the telescope in the car, but did not set it up, but rather concentrated on photography instead of astronomy.
The entire Chicago skyline cannot fit into a single frame, and with a wide angled lens, the fish-eye effect comes into play, with horizom line curvature. So a stitching procedure is called for. And the results were ok...
