Thx for info, helpful hint.
Also have both Gigatubes - wired and wireless. Very handy but not necessary in this case and shooting at 90 degree rotations. Plus going this far out, with winds, stablizing poles is very difficult.
Hi Bill, I have the NNR-1, Nikon D7000, Sigma 8mm, and a 14' pole,and have been practicing horizontals, but I am not getting results I am happy with. I am setting the R-1 at -10* and shooting 4 around, then moving to one side and shooting 4 more around. (vertical rotation on all). I am then masking (PTGui pro)
myself out. I am getting lots of stitch lines. Should I be changing the angle of the R-1 for some of the shots?
I have a very sturdy fiberglas painters pole that I installed a 3/8" thread in the end of. When yo say "one up" do you mean away from the pole and myself?
