Mis- alignment

If I finish up with an image that has not lined up quite correctly (not stitched perfectly) in one or two places (say 98% perfect), is that an indication the camera is not correctly lined up on the Mrotator TCP tripod mount?. And is that then trial and error to get it positioned just right?

Dave - would it be at all possible for me to have a chat with you about sorting the D300 with Sigma 8mm and the TCP please? I'm away till next week but sometimes I seem to get easy to stitch shots and sometimes I'm struggling even when I'm pinpointing lots of wee flags on the maunal stitch part of PW5.
Totally understand that you have important things to do other than that but it would be, as ever, much appreciated.

Cheers

Forrest

Hmmm  obtaining the No parallax point on the TCP Short pan head is not really a trial and error task.  True its a visual calibration alignment  process.  But once set to the millimeter mark, you probably won't have to do it again  AND it will help greatly during the stitching process.

If you have already calibrated camera/lens/ pan head you might want to revisit and refine your current settings.

Otherwise

Its an easy task, takes about 15 minutes if you want me to help walk you through the process,  I am on MS Live Chat or Yahoo chat and have a fast connection speed suitable for video/ audio conferencing .

Tomorrow is 4th July holiday.. so I will probably be out in the backyard for a while.  My phone number is on our website.   During the summer time I have 2 types of wearing attire.  1 wet bathing suit and 1 dry one.  And I always have a walk about phone sitting next to a beer.

Hope this helps, with the help of Dave and Smooth I think I have mine set just about perfect.

Dave and Jerry thanks for the info. 

I have just viewed both those web links you suggested Jerry and I am going to give that methord a try. It looks straight forward. If I get stuck I'll contact Dave - hopefully in his dry bathing suit.

Thanks again.

Fiddled about with the axis on the agnos...actually it didn't solve the problem...so back to the drawing board!
I was basically lookin at the gold ring and the 'eye' of the lens being in the right places but it still must be off.

Darn
