This panorama is not as good as it could be because of the vignette caused by the lens used, but it gives a good representation of the  North and North West shores of the Dead Sea - it is perhaps pushing the limits as the most of the subject is 10 Kilometres or more from the camera so the lens has been set to the maximum zoom of 200mm (35mm equivalent = 300mm) and the panorama is made up of 32 images
