Thank you, Terry. I'm pleased you did not find any bugs.
My setup concerning the camera is very simple: Nikon CP990 with fisheye adapter in F2 mode (full frame fisheye), Kaidan CS panorama head, and a very stable tripod.
Software used: Debarrelizer (theimagingfactory) for reducing color fringing, Photomatix (HDRI and tone mapping), PTGui (with autopano and enblend) and PanoTools for stitching, PS for cleaning and optimizing the result, NeatImage for removing noise, Panoweaver 3.01 for adding zenith and nadir caps, PanoCube and QuickTime Pro for creating QT cubic panos, PTViewer 2.8.
It takes 2-3 hours to complete one panorama this way (plus photography of 50 images per pano). Not really economical, but makes quite good results.
