First I would like to thank every one in this board for helping new comers like me. I was able to shoot first set of test image after setting up my Merlin GoTo head (Firmware v02.07.81) with Deltawave BlueTooth (thanks to Claude). I am using Nokia N810 (firmware DIABLO_5.2008.43-7) with Papywizard development v2.1.21-1.

But I have little problem with alignment of image by column correctly. Plese see the attached screen capture. FYI, I am using PTGui Pro v0.1.3. bellow is the xml code if this helps.

Code:

How can I make sure the motor aligns vertically in every rows?

Thanks in advance.

This seems to be an example of 'undocumented feature' (aka a bug) that goes back a long way.

Some of us early adopters spent quite a while exploring the circumstances in which this occurs. The developer (of Papywizard) was unable to work out why it occurs but as I recall one can prevent it by disabling (unckecking) the Alternate drive on Yaw and Pitch axes plugins.

It makes the shoot take approx. 50% longer but should stop this 'stepping'.

FWIW it doesn't occur if you use the T&C/Panogear Touch Controller.

Thanks mediavets, for prompt reply. I will try that.

Just wondering, is the touch control sold separately? How much does it cost?

Thanks
