Thank you Wes James. It was a great trip that I would love to redo.

I guess the point I was trying to make was that being "correct" is good, but not easy to do for no parallax error. I normally use a tripod that I level, then level the ball head with a flash mount spirit level. Not "correct" but works fine for longer exposures.

BTW, the shots were made with camera in vertical position to try to get better proportions.

Also not previously mentioned is that this is a way to "cheat" on the pixel count. Stitching multiple shots result in pano with much more pixels than a single shot resulting in a larger possible enlargement.

A rail for doing Macro such as Manfrotto 454 is good to get the axis on the nodal point. Ive yet to try a panorama with mine. Im waiting for something worth shooting.
