    Use these two tutorials to find the settings for yourself.

    Hi Vedder,

    you have to get used to these two tutorials and the workflow of the links Andrew has placed. Because you always have to check the settings with your own equipment.

    LRS for D7000 with Nadir Adapter is 50 on NN3 MKII, without Nadir Adapter it is 56.

    URS for 10.5 is 83 for D7000.

    Test with your own equipment. Otherwise you are not sure basic settings are ok and stitching errors do not occur from wrong settings.

    Hi hindenhaag,

    trying to finetune my NN3-D7000-Nikkor 10.5 setup.
    I am still far off my previous accuracy with the D90... not sure what is wrong....

    Ran about your settings and don't get it, cause your LRS at 56 without Nadir Adapter is miles away from what I need. Looks like I might end around 48. Is there a mistake in your post? Just wondering if I am doing something totally wrong...

    Hi Ralf,

    I'll check this for you.

    Hello Ralf,

    Set you D7000 and Nikon 10.5mm so that the vertical axis or rotation passes through the center of the lens when viewed from the front and is coincident with the gold ring on your lens when viewed from the side.
    http://hugha.co.uk/Acrobat%20PDF%20F...int-Clouds.pdf (Page 7).

    This should give you a good starting point, but should actually provide the right set up.

    Best regards, Hugh.

    Hello Ralf,

    Sorry for that.
    It would seem that the URL is too long and has been shortened in the posting.
    You can get to the page by using
    and clicking on the 6th button down - Spherical Panoramas for HDS Point Clouds

    Best regards, Hugh.

    Hello Ralf,

    I mixed my numbers on the pics per accident in the first post. I rechecked it. D7000_10.5_NN3 MKII_Nadir Adapter LRS is 49mm with use of Nadir Adapter. Without Nadir Adapter it will be +6mm because of offset of the reference point of the Nadir Adapter 55mm. URS 10.5 I used is 81.

    48mm cuts to the right = move to the right, 50mm cuts to the left = move to the left.

    I used a 9cm diameter hard paper on top of tripod below rotator base. Hole punched in center for 3/8" screw of Tripod Top Plate Screw. F22, pitch -15º, 6 shots around, stitched in PTGui Pro, pano settings 360 x 180, output .mov file. Moved down to nadir, zoomed in, Screenshot with SkitchPlus. skitch.com

    Hope it helps.
