Place for shoting was very familiar for me, because in childhood i lived not far from here. My father teached me to ride bycicle in 1972 at boulevard between Library of Academy of Sciences and State Optical Intstitute. In 1978-1981 one day per week i learned at building of Faculty of History, because Faculty of Military study was located here. In 1982-1985 I worked at Mendeleevskaya linia and every day crossed the square.
The panorama is stitched from 3 raws of shots, each raw contains approximately 14 shots. Shutter time is -1 stop for bottom row and +1 stop for top row relatively center row (for center raw : ISO 200, F-stop 7.9, exposure time = 1/60 sec, WB=shadows).
Realviz Stitcher 4.0.2 helped me to join these shots into spherical panorama, which was corrected and adjusted by means Pano2QTVR program (version 0.9.0) (author - Thomas Rauscher). I have got 2 days to understand how to add hotspots and to create movie, but GUI of the program was very friendly (for me :).
Next event (best pano of 2005) I am going to use Pentax film camera and ZENITAR fisheye lens.
