Zoom in as far as you want. That's the beauty of a gigapan, you can zoom way way in. I'm the guy in the red Coke shirt.

That image took an hour to take and is comprised of 711 images stitched together.
Very cool...! I like the Gigapan pic.

The inverter is not the issue. A 600 - 1000 watt pure sine inverter is totally worth the money. I spent way more on the wiring, switches, second battery and battery monitoring system than the inverter cost.

I screwed up thinking I could just drop a 2400 watt inverter into the camper and I could "run the air conditioner" whenever I wanted!

What a Dufus I was! Until I actually started to dry camp and ran the coffee maker the first morning I could not believe my battery was dead by noon.

I had a single Deka DC-24 "Dual Purpose" battery as my "house battery" - Total Amp Hour Capacity ----> 75 amp hours

Talk about drinking from a fire hose!

I found out my "stock" battery was damn near useless for dry camping but only after I had spent another hundred bucks buying a second one (they have to be matched and changed in 12 volt cell pairs). Now I have 150 amp hours. Sheesh!

Currently saving my spare change for a couple of 12 volt deep cycle Trojans. It may take a while. $$$$

I had an inverter in my last mh and found I never used it. It seemed the generator was much more of a plus so I would never invest in an inverter again.

The government made me do that ... Just kidding!

The black places are where the camera decided not to take a picture for one reason or another so I replaced the missing picture with a blank black one to keep everything else in it's place.
