what an inefficient method. this must be a Horror for human having the head fixed for 30minutes. and result is very unsecure because of possible movements of the head, even for milimeters...

why not using a Seitz 6x17 Digital: 1 Image with 160mpixel that takes 3-4 seconds. so using 6 such Images takes 6 x 4 seconds = 24 seconds plus some time for Lifting the tripod (my manfrotto e.g. does have a winder so I can lift the Center colum milimieter exact the same way than last time.... so 5 lifts a 10 seconds + 24 seconds for the Images + some spare time = 120 seconds all is done. and my apg only Needs to stictch 6 Images....

I'm totally agreed with Georg.... although I have to say, the robotic arm is really impressive...

More money than sense.. A D800 could have been used with a prime macro lens with the D800 set to 51 points of focus... The angry face must have been painful to keep that expression.. Whats the point in doing a human face in this detail.. An asteroid or fossil I can understand...
