Thanks so much for your detailed answer again Smooth, really helpful!
I hesitated to ask because I've seen post on these forums about using other software than Panoweaver and I'm not sure if forum rules allow discussing it, so a bit confused there... Anyway I was very glad to read you used PW4 for this beauty.
Probably a very stupid question, but you say that you had to remove the tripod head... and I know I've asked sort of the same question before, but did you not have to remove the three pods as well?
Sorry to keep asking so many questions... but I think I'm about ready to buy it all and start shooting. Next post will be "my pano won't stitch properly"
