    I haven't had a lot of experience with panning. Are you handling it manually? Or do you have an electronic gimbal of some sort?

    I use a 6 dollar kitchen timer with my go pro attached to the top. Set the go pro to take as many photos as you want in the given time. One full revolution of the timer will take an hour and go 360 degrees, adjust accordingly for what you want to see. It is really cheap and gives great results!

    Oh... you meant the timer was actually your gimbal. I thought you just meant you were using it to time the shot.
    That's pretty brilliant!

    The really neat part was it is in Florida and it was not raining. ;)
