Thanks! It was an epic hike to get the shot. About 15 miles of hiking round trip (blog post and video of the hike here (external link)).

OK I have been looking at some of these photos and now rather nervous to post with the quality some can produce.

I have had my 600D for about three months and added a Canon 10-22 to my kit lenses and this was the first time I have used it on a trip I did. I have modified very slightly in Lightroom. Feel free to comment as I want to learn some of the skills that I see here.

What is the optimal focal length(s) for panorama? I get problematic issues with wide angles.

What is the final size/resolution of image you want?
How many images are you willing to stitch?

Wider angles give images with lower resolution and fewer images required.

Narrower angles give higher resolution with more images required to cover the same subject.

What issues do you have with wide angles?

The resolution isn't all that important, I am not going to any quality print. Is it better to shoot at 50-60mm and stitch 5 or 6 pictures together or shoot at 20-25mm and only stitch 2-3 pictures?

I get problems with more distortion with the wider angles so I was curious if there is a "optimal" focal length. So far I have found the best results for me to be around 50mm but that is just based on trial and error, I don't have anything to back this up as being better than any other focal length.

Another problem I have is with my computer stitching the wide angles together, it just takes forever. It's a old system but does have 3g of RAM and I'm using Photoshop CS3. It is doing a lot of swapping out to disc and I run out of disc space on my scratch disc which has a little less than 8gb on it. Seems odd.

A wider angle will give more distortion. You can correct that with various SW. You could try Hugin, which can do all that in an automated way, though there is a learning curve. You can kick it off and let it go overnight with a slow computer and it actually can do quite a lot with limited resources if you are willing to wait.

50mm is a pretty good length for non-distorted images. Much less and you start to see the 'wide angle' distortions.
