Thanks for the compliment; I´m glad to here that.
I took all photos with my Sony HD Handycam (HDR-CX6EK) in a resolution of 6 Megapixel, since I don´t have a photocamera anymore. It doesn´t have a panorama function, so I have to take the shots by my own sense.
It´s not that difficult, pick a marked point for you and turn the camera in the direction you want (like you do if it´s fixed on a tripod), so that this point at the end is on the different fringe and can be found on both pictures - don´t use the fokus while you doing that.
For stitching those images I use tools like MAGIX PanoramaStudio or Canon Photo Stitch - a tool of my old Canon IXUS 330
and there are many other options - open source, too.
Sometimes you won´t have success, but in the most cases, those shots are usable, too.
