Stitching Methods <1>
-The dome masters on this page were stitched by QuickStitcher-

Pentadivision and quadridivision are standard stitching methods with cubic camera alignment.
Pentadivision uses five cameras (front, top, left, right, back) to cover a half-world, or hemisphere.
If you decline pentadivision camera alignment by 45 degrees, it becomes quadridivision camera alighment.
Only four cameras (front, top, left, right) are enough to cover the world in quadridivision.
