      I regularly use 25% but I did shoot panoramas with as less as 5%
      overlap (well, not completely intentional I must admit ;-) I
      occasionally use my Zenitar with a 5-around workflow which gives
      about 10%.

      However, even if you use 25% my example would result in 12 images if
      you calculate with the image center tilted up to 60° and hence leave
      holes. And the problem gets worse if you use a wider angle lens:
      given 40°x60° FoV, 60° tilt up and 30% overlap you get 7 images if
      you calculate with the image center. The lower edge will be 30° above
      the horizon needing 312° total Fov but with 7 images you only get

      Same for 60°x80° and 30% overlap: tilted up 60° you need 5 images for
      30° overlap which results in 300° coverage where you need 339°.

      best regards
