    They used a 400mm lens and 2x converter which means resolution is
    likely 1/2 of what a top say 85mm lens is capable of. So their
    resolution is about 1/2 of what would be 18 gigapixels on one axis.
    But the computer that stitched it must have been a powerhouse.

    In this case, it's resolution in /object/ space which matters, not on
    the image plane. Lower image-plane resolution will likely make the
    image compress somewhat more, reducing file size and improving download
    speed.
