I would suggest you are tilting down a little more than required .........

Sorry I thought that's what you meant by this post. No biggie atleast i'm on the right track


Yes, so right from the start I had an inkling it was more than -15 degrees. Somehow I think you got from that to tilt even further when the reverse was true.

Anyway, all clear now and we can go forward and get your NPP nailed.

Looks like a clear case of being way too far back on the upper rail. I can confirm this with the original images to stitch.

I just used the old link from before.

I had tried moving forward on top rail.. but the middle object kept getting larger and I couldn't see the roundness of the circle so I thought I was doing something wrong.
Oh by the way I just put a yellow post-it note on my handle so I could see the complete Panohead top

Thanks Smooth

Lee,

Please move the camera 10mm forward and shoot a set of images, zip and upload. I will compare these with the last.
Always keeping -15 degrees exactly.

I have stitched them up and still it appears you are too far back. Move it forward another 10mm and we'll have another go.

Remember the gold ring on the lens will be very close to the tripod centerline. As a "rough" positioning guide.

I see some improvement

I was doing that originally .. but when the black octagon overtook the image I thought I was way off.

Lee,

That image set stitched very well. But I would like to confirm you NPP by having you shoot another set with a little more tilt down so we can see the pano head in the nadir view. Using your LCD view finder tilt down so you can just see the bubble level (split in half) and then shoot the 6 images, upload and I will confirm where you are at.

The difference we are seeing in the nadir view at -15 degrees is the difference between brand of panoheads and their designs.

Let me also advise you to change the position of your Manfrotto 322RC2 grip from Horizontal to Vertical so it does impose on your nadir quite so much.

Regards, Smooth
