You are an excellent photographer and very demanding regarding image quality. When you are doing these 8 shot panos, how are you minimizing ghosting, particularly with moving clouds, moving vegetation, etc. I doubt you would tolerate this stuff, so wondering how you deal with it. Thanks.
I'm not Bernard, but I am experienced in Pano-stitching (which I already did with film-scans, and print montage even before that).
Good/dedicated stitching software usually has a pretty good built-in image Blending module, and some even allow other blending engines as a sort of plug-in. These blending enhines take care of most of the image movement in the overlap between the image tiles that make up the image. Sometimes even these engines can use some manual help, and allow to do that in e.g. Photoshop with layers (manual mask adjustments, manual warping, or plain cloning/healing).
