Thanks for the kind words Evan.

Setting up for the position is fairly easy because it's in front of a boulder (that I don't expect will be moving any time soon.) I also brought a printed copy of the first pano for reference. The hardest part was getting the motorized zoom lens as close as possible to the same focal length. Turns out summer was shot at 5.1mm and autumn at 5.9mm. I wish the camera LCD review included focal length data. Then it was just slowly swing around adjusting the tripod slightly for horizon and adjusting exposure to balance the light as I went. I ended up with a 2/3 stop shift along the way. For best results in both panos, I made sure the full bridge was centered in one image and the full "island" was centered in another. As a wide angle fan, I love doing all this.

OK, so you didn't use the HQ Burst method that was shown here during the summer.  I'm uber impressed!
