The Panorama Mission rotates the camera 180 or 360 degrees while taking photos which can then be downloaded to render a panorama. In full circle mode, 8 photos are taken.

The Panorama Mission does not support the image stitching feature, so the images must be stitched manually. All the images will be stored on the SD card.
