I think I wasn't careful with "vanishing point" and leveling in software.
Here is another one

Hello,
What do you think now? I know exposure is bad, but how is stitch and NPP?
I'm trying to follow your instructions -15 and +65 degrees and 90 up, but.....
Thank you!

You need not incorporate both +65 and +90 in the stitch - either should cover the zenith - it's a belt-n-braces approach to shoot both.

The +65 is more likely to enable APP/APG to detect a link between it and the main row of 6, sometimes a +90 will just be blue sky or white ceiling and then APP/APG won't find any feature to match with the main row of 6.

So in such circumstance the +65 may work best, especially if you give some consideration to the direction in which you shoot it to ensure good features fro matching between the +65 and the main row of 6.

It doesn't take long to shoot the few extra 'zenith' and zenith shots.

Hi,
Are you recommending one +65 shots or 6 around?
Just got back from the gym.
Thanks.

I would take 3 - every other click stop if head set for 6 - but probably use just one of them.

BTW I do have Nadir adapter. I forgot how to use it also.

This may help?:

Is it even worth using NN Nadir adapter?

Yes, I think so - especially for longer exposures indoors or if bracketing - although I have yet to buy one I plan to.
