    I found these settings for the Nikon D3 with Nikon's full frame 16mm 1:2.8 Fisheye on the NN5 with the Arca style quick release to be: A - 97 and B - 62.

    Hi Bob,

    Thx for sharing.

    My LRS - A = Lower rail setting is 100 and URS - B = Upper rails setting is 68. Tested with these methods:

    Thanks - will double check - looked OK when I tested shooting the Nadir cap, maybe I didn't look close enough or, on the other hand - its a Fisheye which, I understand, can have multilpe points.
    I made a copy of John's page some time ago - first I've seen the Easypano page - again, my thanks. Looking at the Smooth's instructions would appear that only one straight down shot capturing the Nadir cap of the head along with the row shot at -15 (which I have been doing anyway) is all that's needed - heading out now to try this and a couple of other things - what you have told me, what I have read and what my logic has stumbled me through.
    My conclusion that photography would be fun in retirement, especally since discovering pangoramas is proving correct!
    Regards
    Bob

    Again - Thanks - MANY! I did double check and my settings were wrong, as you quite tactfully pointed out. Don't know what I did wrong or what I didn't do. I followed Rosario's technique found at http://www.rosaurophotography.com/index.html. The alignment stitching errors were right there and I didn't see them but they hit me in the face with what I shot yesterday! Will go back and do it again using your settings.
    Bob
