My pleasure to help. If you just purchased your Gigapan and haven't used it outdoors yet, there's a little something you should know that's undocumented. You'll attract attention from passerby's like bees to honey. Hopefully you're good with people. I'm the wrong person for this and I hate getting attention, but I attract it and so I deal. One of the reasons why I didn't get a Gigapan Pro is because it's so much larger than the Epic 100. I can't imagine the hordes of people that will swarm me while I take the picture.

One thing to get, if you don't already own one, is a really sturdy tripod. Also, someone suggested a small tent to put around the unit to block the wind. I think that's a good idea.
