Rollei Panorama Head rotation axis Test

This is a test (I did it some years ago) to establish the right rotation axis for the Rolleiflex 2.8C and the Rollei Panorama Head two basic models with the lens focused to infinity. It can be applied to other Rollei TLR models despite the different lenses, the change is almost imperceptible for practical purposes. There is a very slight difference for the rotation axis provided using the RPH first model and the RPH newest model used in conjunction with the Rolleifix, it does not affect the final stitched image for practical purposes and please remember some Rollei TLR manual recommendations about the RPH use: "...landscape pictures of distant views, which include a large portion of the horizon, are made possible with the panorama head..."
