D218366M

This is the latest in a series of experiments at creating panoramic images of the view from the bedroom of my home in the Baldwin Hills of Los Angeles.

It was "stitched" from six frames, taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV camera mounted on a Photek eXtender (a 38" Telescopic Horizontal Boom) attached to a Velbon VE-3 tripod. This allows the camera to project out the window of my balcony/sunroom, so that the camera can swivel from horizon-to-horizon -- west-northwest to southeast. The camera/boom/tripod can be seen in the next picture in this album.

All six frames were shot at ISO 160, aperture of f:11, with a 30 second exposure. This resulted in a very slight overexposure of the northwest sky because this image was taken at 8:50 pm, just an hour after local sunset (which was 7:55). Mirror-Lockup was enabled, and the shutter was triggered with an electric cable release to avoid potential camera-shake.

A Canon f:1.4 50mm prime lens was used, which gives the same perspective as the human eye -- neither wide-angle nor telephoto. Other than slight cropping at the left and right edges, no post-processing was done on this image.

This image supersedes one taken on May 13, which had a barely visible amount of camera-shake on its eastern periphery.
