Gardens of the Schonbrunn summer place as seen from the Balcony of the Imperial apartments.

The Schonbrunn on the outskirts of Vienna was the summer residence of or the Austrian Hapsburg Monarchy. Even Napoleon lived here in 1805 and 1809 and survived an assassination attempt in 1809. 1400+ rooms... I toured 40 of them. ...... "a nice summer cottage".

See the next pano for the veiw from the top of the hill looking backwards.

Hard to shoot as the sun was bright and shining towards the camera. Hazy weather. Don't understand the banding as this had never happened on a pano before. Overlap was less than usual and perhaps this was the cause. Please comment.

    Settings were the same as previous work that was not banded. This was shot at F8, the maximum F number for my camera. A possibility is that at max zoom, I do not usually recalibrate FOV and I noticed on a later set up that setting zoom to the max of 18x optical does not always result in the exact same actual FOV. I think my FOV was smaller than what was calibrated and this is evident in the sticher notes where it says horizontal overlap is 3.1 to 12.2%. Yikes that is low overlap and even risks gaps due to backlash in the mechanics. Ignore vertical overlap notes because the 66% is an artifact of the stitching messed up in part of the pano.

    Were your camera settings any different for this one than others? autofocus off? F stop set to something suitable? Mine needs F8 or so to avoid vignetting. If the overlap was the only difference, I'd lean that way.
