Located on the east side of San Francisco Bay, just opposite the Golden Gate, the University of California at Berkeley campus has beckoned scholars for 150 years. This view was taken near the geographic center of campus and shows an eclectic collection of buildings that have accumulated over time. My office and my house are both visible in this panorama.

This image was taken using a kite. A Nikon Coolpix 8400 with FC-E9 Fisheye lens adapter was fired every 12 seconds during the flight with a James Gentles' AutoGentLED. Files were captured to a 6 Gb Hitachi microdrive. The camera was stabilized by a purpose built cradle and Picavet suspension while lifted by a Sutton Flowform 30 in a fresh 15 mph breeze. The image, comprised of two opposing fisheye views, was assembled with Panotools and PTGui then run through Pano2QTVR.
