Here are the original images of the
Opera House that appear in
the video. Despite my best efforts, the building isn't always centred in
the images. The photos were taken from an over-water
that was conveniently built for the purpose of viewing the Opera House,
about 40 years before the Opera House itself was built.

If you want to make a video out of the frames then you probably want the
sequence to be stabilised. It's probably not the most obvious or correct
method for a computer vision person to use, but I used AviSynth to
stabilise the frames - it was quick and did a good enough job. The
images in the zip file below are smaller than the raw photos above.
If you need larger versions, you'll need
the DePan and MVTools
AviSynth plgins and
the FFTW plugin.
Put these DLLs in the directory containing the
original JPEGs (above). Then, put
this .avs script in the same directory
and open it in VirtualDubMod. You can save the individual frames
using File -> Save image sequence.
