View from the 4th level of the Capitol

The above panorama was taken with an Apple QuickTake 150 camera from the publically accessible balcony around the Wisconsin State Capitol. This balcony is referred to as being on the 4th level. The balcony is no where near being on the nodal point or axis of the Capitol so the pictures have horrible parallax problems with near by features. I took 24 pictures (every 15 degrees) around the balcony and stitched them together using distant objects for registration. The 4 glass topped galleries are particularly wierd after stitching. For a better view (with different problems) see the panorama from the 9th level. The panorama from the top of the Capitol is nearly free of distortion.
