    Re: Stitching Panos in the Darkroom

    When photographing for stitched panoramas, if there are elements in the subject that are both close to and far from the camera, the camera should be rotated around its entrance pupil. This is fairly close to the center of the lens except in retrofocus and telephoto lenses. With longer telephoto lenses and the camera pivoted around the entrance pupil, the tripod can be tilted towards the subject and the head leveled for improved stability.

Longer would be possible but very unstable on the tripod. The images will line up.
    Ah sorry, I thought the OP was talking about copying flat artwork. Sure a pano shot in the field should align, especially if you rotate around the lens' nodal point, or close to it.
