Very nice indeed!

Do you have any technical details? Camera? ISO? Shutter time? Nr of images? Total time to take the pano?

Very nice...I like it! Where in Iceland was this taken? And, what is the field of view for this picture?

Very nice indeed! I am glad I clicked on the link to see it is a 360 pano, patched and all. Was it two rows or can you do one row with large nadir and zenith? Were you wearing hobnail boots or crampons? Looks rather slippery!

Max if you click the link you will see it is a whole 360° image, so field of view is 360° x 180°
This was shot right here.

It was multirow as I used a 24mm lens.

2x 90°
6x 45°
12x 0°
6x -45°
4x -90°

It was very slippery indeed, no I did not bring any with me but I have spikes on my tripod, good for getting me there and away as well to keep the tripod in place.

360...of course! I should have noticed. It looks like the aurora was filling almost the entire sky. Is the glow on the horizon from Reykjavik?

Yes the glow is from the capital area. Hafnarfjordur on the far left, then Gardabaer, Kopavogur and Reykjavik.

Beautiful image! The 360 degree format works perfectly. Fantastic colors too, especially the reflections in the water.
cheers, Darcy
