    I had to cram myself into the corner of the cockpit after moving the captains seat so I could fit, then manage the tripod. This is what I got but found that there is still more of the cockpit I needed to capture.

    I would suggest panoramic shooting, that would prolly be the easiest

    I might also suggest retrying this with a full frame camera, 18mm should cover that cockpit for the most part. Worst case scenario pick up an inexpencive film body that is compatable with your lens for this shot and make the most out of that 18mm.

    ^ That all assumes the 18mm lens he has is not a DX.

    Well...yeah, you are correct. You know more about the Nikon D series than I do, I have no clue what lenses are compatable with what Nikonwise, Hell, I don't even know what sized censor is in the D90 and D60 so my entire post is speculation.

    The Nikon line is a confusing one to say the least. I think you have to rise up to the D3 to be in the full frame line..untill then they are all APSC sized.

    It is quite irritating that Nikon made some cameras rely on in-the-lense focus motors and others with it in the body..its been an expensive journey for me because of that.

    Well, I do have a Tokina 12-24 on the way to help with a wider angle. I don't have Photoshop or any of those programs yet to facilitate stitching pictures together. So, I'll see how it goes from here.

    There's the Nikon D700, a full-frame camera, priced well below the D3.
