comment How to match colors on photographs stitched together?
OK. EV stands for Exposure-Value, so equivalent ISO, Shutter-Speed, plus Aperture. That should make the exposure match but the colors will not if you were in Auto WB. Of course, since you shot RAW, that is only the default and you can override it at development time.

comment How to match colors on photographs stitched together?
Absolutely. Manual settings are better but the grey card allows you to match the levels after the fact, so I thought it was good to mention.

comment How do I zoom in during image playback on a Nikon D3300?
That is odd.... how can you zoom out in review? Is the image already zoomed in? I have a D5500 with me and at the review one can initially zoom in but not out.

Is there a good surface for a bean bag with unobstructed view? Or would a Gorilapod fair better?

comment Does lens focus affect the appearance of sensor dust?
Interesting. This reminds me that the sensor is sensitive to light angle and the most significant change in designing lenses for digital is to make most rays hit the lens perpendicular to it.

@JohnCavan Was there a tripod below your K-5? Did you see any tripods being used around?
