After taking those shots the color of all shots were corrected in Adobe Camera raw. Then all those fragments were stitched with Kolor AutoPano Giga.

The final image saved into .KRO format as its size was 65GB and JPG only allows you max size 2GB. Later on it split into 10 parts of Photoshop Raw files for final finish as Photoshop has a limit of editing 300,000 by 300,000 pixels image. For this splitting a software Gigapx was used.
