GraphicsArray: same width, different height ? 360deg-fly around a surface

Dear experts, How can I force mathemathica41 to make graphics in a column of same width but different height? By default, mathematica gives two cells on top of each other the same height, but arranges the width such that both cells fit in the column width. This results in a horizontal sequeezing/scaling of cells which I would like to omit. Here is an example: Single output of both plots one after to the other just looks fine, but when they enter in an GraphicsArray[], the automatic scaling squeezes the lower cell width instead of stretching its height. >>>> demo start : just cut and paste into a new .nb >>>>>>>>>> \!\(\(\( (*\ demo\ starts\ here\ *) \)\(\[IndentingNewLine]\)\(\("\<two single plots \ are shown here:\>"\)\(\[IndentingNewLine]\) \(table1\ = ListPlot3D[ Table[Sin[x\ y], {x, 0, \(3 Pi\)\/2, Pi\/15}, {y, 0, \(3 Pi\)\/2, Pi\/15}], \ PlotRange\ -> {0, \ 0.25}, Axes\ -> \ {None, \ None, \ None}, \ ViewPoint\ -> \ \ {5, \(-2.5\), 0.6}, BoxRatios\ -> \ {10, 10, 1.25}];\)\(\[IndentingNewLine]\) \(table2\ = \ ListPlot3D[ Table[Sin[x\ y], {x, 0, \(3 Pi\)\/2, Pi\/15}, {y, 0, \(3 Pi\)\/2, Pi\/15}], \ PlotRange\ -> {\(-1\), \ 0}, \ Axes\ -> \ {None, \ None, \ None}, ViewPoint\ -> \ {5, \(-2.5\), 1}, BoxRatios\ -> \ {10, 10, 5}];\)\(\[IndentingNewLine]\) \("\<and this is how they look whend combined into an graphicsarray:\>"\)\(\ \[IndentingNewLine]\) \(table3\ = {{table1}, {table2}};\)\(\[IndentingNewLine]\) \(Show[GraphicsArray[ table3, \ \ GraphicsSpacing\ -> \ 0]];\)\(\[IndentingNewLine]\) \("\<My question is: how to make cells in an graphics array to same width \ (but different height) ?

For all those of you that might have similar problems with plotting graphics: there are good support-procedures on the David-Park-homepage http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/Mathematica.html But I couldn't find a solution for my problem. My general purpose is to generate an animated GIF, which shows a 360-degree-fly-around a surface plot, that is cut into two parts at some z-value (this visualizes threshold effects on surfaces). Interested people can get a copy of my *.nb I carefully browsed through TMB and F1HELP for GraphicsArray-Options (well I think that F1 is pretty poor on these specific subjects), and of course also this newsgroup, but I couln't find the magic trick sought for. Thanks for your help in advance Bye Stef
