About the Images: the fisheye images were taken with a Canon 7D camera with a 5.6mm fisheye lens (custom setup from Dome3D). Images are provided as PNG images in 3 different resolutions : 1024×1024 pixels, 2048×2048 pixels, and 4096×4096 pixels. The vast majority of the images were HDR (High Dynamic Range) processed, from a combination of 3 bracketed exposures taken at different apertures.
