I've done this with Silverlight/Deepzoom/HDView as the result is far better than Zoomify.

A Zoomify version will be coming in the morning for those who don't like the thought of installing browser plug-ins from Microsoft.

2.3 Gigapixels. Be gentle with my bandwidth please!

Stunningly detailed image Gerald, thank you!

I'm assuming it's a composite of hundreds of images, how many to be exact?
How long did it take to put it together?

You must need quite a stiff drink after all that work.
