I've known about this for ages but never gotten round to having a go but i came across this video the other day and because the lad in it happened to have the same lens as me it gave me the kick I needed.
 

 
Anyhoo I took the car, camera and dog out for a play to see if I could get a decent result and after a quick fiddle came home with 66 RAF files that I hoped had the whole scene covered. I did try to keep them all nicely lined up but after the first few dozen I got a bit random but to be fair they all still aligned correctly so I wouldn't say you need to be uber careful
 
After I got home and  loaded them into Lightroom (any software will do at the stage) I initially Exported them as full-sized JPEG's to a named folder on my desktop for easy access later. As Photoshop and my old iMac struggled for nearly half an hour to sort them and then produced a 230 million pixel files ( ARGH!!!!!!!!! ) I went back and exported them again as 1000 pixels files:

Once you have your files open Photoshop (I think you do need this software but there might be others that can do it) navigate to: File - Automate - Photomerge. Make sure you click on Reposition as this keeps the image flat - Blend Images Together so they match each other - Folder then point it at the one you created with all you files in. Photoshop will then load them all into the Photomerge box and once you hit OK it will set about combining them. Now this may take some time so a cup of tea/coffee may be in order.

After it has crunched all the files you'll end up with something like the below screen shot. The gaps are where you didn't take enough images and its all still layered so you can tweak any oddities - mine looked to be spot on so all I did was crop it ready for final processing.

At this point you can do as you would normally to get it the way you like - I shoved it into ACR and gave its a tweak for this demo but really its up to you.

Have fun...

Yeah have read about this technique. Looks good.

Thanks, Dennis.
