thedude proves it’s possible.
I should mention that I used the latest version of PhotoVista to stitch this together. The original 17,860 pixel-wide version is the best “automatic” stitch I’ve ever produced – at least in terms of stitch accuracy. The new version’s automatic lens detection is a real time-saver. This means that for most panoramas, it’s probably not worth the effort of using the more flexible and possibly more accurate PanoTools.
