A Night at the Museum

PictureBubbles Panorama Thumbnail

This weekend, I had the opportunity to sleep over at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and I couldn’t resist taking a few PictureBubbles° while I was there. Above is the “Birds of the World” exhibit, and below is the museum’s Fin Whale skeleton, under which we camped out for the night in tents.

Giga Panorama of the city of Avalon on Catalina Island

Giga Panorama of Avalon

This is a test of a “Giga Panorama” – a very large image that has been stitched together from 147 telephoto images. This makes it possible to zoom in much further than usual.

Mt. Wilson Observatory (long overdue)

I’m having one of those days where I go back and check out all of the things I said I’d do “later.” Amongst those to-do items were some panoramas I’ve taken in the past year or so that I’ve been meaning to post on the blog. The first set, here, is from our PictureBubbles visits to the Mount Wilson Observatory here in California.

Inside the 100-ft. Telescope’s dome. The desk looks almost Jules-Verne-steampunk, no? (more…)

Saint Francis High School Virtual Tour

We recently completed a pretty slick virtual tour of Saint Francis High School in La Cañada, California. Mouse over any of the text descriptions and click to see a full-screen PictureBubble panorama.

Object Movie: Hooker 100-inch telescope, Mount Wilson Observatory

Object Movie: Hooker 100-inch telescope, Mount Wilson Observatory

Hooker 100-inch telescope
Mount Wilson Observatory, California

Here’s the first glimpse of our PictureBubbles tour of the Mt. Wilson Observatory, out in the mountains north of Los Angeles. Unlike most of our other work, this is an “object movie.” Rather than pivoting around where the viewer stands, like most spherical panoramas, this image allows you to drag across, left to right, and rotate about the focal point. In this case, that focal point is this massive telescope, finished somewhere around 1917.

Making this was quite a lot of fun. Rather than walk around the entire installation at set intervals, Carel was able to set up the tripod in one position while Arthur Vaughan (Deputy Director of the Observatory) and I marked off the floor in 5° intervals. The entire domed turret revolves around the telescope, allowing us to create an image that would be otherwise impossible.
