you should talk to Luca Vascon, he is the TOP WARLOCK in my opinion
regarding this type of image.
One reason which no one i think mentioned so far that you might have some
funny problems is that if you shoot a tower pano with many meters away from
the nodal point, you are in fact capturing more than 360 degrees, and so if
you do everything properly, you'll end up with a curved horizon.
for example, this pano which is by no means perfect but is still one of my
the final equirect is 7500x3750. Usually with this setup (5d + 10.5) the
final equirect should be less than 7000x3500. I stitched 4 corners and then
joined them manually (with a STRAIGHT horizon).
There are a couple other steps in this process, Bernhard you're a smart guy
and can figure it out, I regret to say that I signed a blood oath with Dr.
Vascon so if anyone wants to learn this particular process, you have to go
to Venice yourself and ask him ;-))

optimization. Those CP's can be seen by PTGui as being very
far apart even though they are nearly perfectly placed. And
optimization doesn't seem to reduce the distance between those
newly added CP's.
I don't know what that means. Just thought I'd mention it in
