Default K5 Panoramas using Manual Mode

Weather hasn't been too kind of late & even today, just as I begin to take a few shots, the rain starts.

I was keen to try out the Manual Mode to 'lock' the exposure when taking a sequence of shots to stitch together into a panorama.

ISO was set to 800 due to the dull conditions, images processed in LightRoom 3.6 to reduce noise & synchronise post processed settings, exported as PSD files and stitched together in PS CS5.

I'm pleased with the results & wonder why I didn't stumble across this method earlier - thanks to Snostorm for his suggestion - see K5 AE-L Problem.
