6 vs 4 on a Sigma 8mm

I spent a few hours yesterday trying to get my TCPS set just right with less than stellar results when shooting 4 TB. It doesn't help that I have all the patience of Jack Kevorkian.

On a whim, I shot the same scene using the exact same settings only I did it with 6 TB. The results were almost perfect. The only aberation I could find when I tested it was on the floor when I had square black and white marble tile. The 9 tiles directly around the tripod showed some very minor ghosting but other than that, perfection. On a carpetted or non-black white tile, I couldn't see any problems with the image at all, except my white balance on the ceiling blows goats.

Thought this might come in handy some time for new folks (like me).

Ain't nothing friendlier in the world than a muddy wet dog.

I got this tripod nadir area with a TCPshort - 4 images around.  Clean stitch too.  Secret is getting the nodal point correctly aligned. And parallax (left to right) alignment fixed.  This is a screen capture while previewing it in panoweaver.  The red marks are denoting the convergence of the 4 images in the nadir area.  In mid center notice the single screw.. shown 4 times.
