Very nice pano but there is a smudge or clear blob on the right side, like a parting of the smog...?

Thanks Mr. P. I suspect there is dust on my sensor.
May need to have it checked out.

There may be dust on your imager, but that would have to be a really big piece of dust to produce a spot that big and irregular, and it would probably be on one of your lens surfaces instead of the imager. It is also possible that the dark area was in the original scene, though I can't come up with a convincing scenario for its cause.

Thanks for your insight Alan. The image is from a Panasonic 'Point & Shoot' LF1 fixed lens camera. I have had 'blobs' like that in the same spot on other shots with this camera. However am not getting them with all my shots with this camera. Very puzzling for sure.

The aperture setting can do a lot to change the size, sharpness, and darkness of these spots. They tend to get smaller, sharper, and more noticeable at smaller (higher-numbered) f-stops. If the cause is on the lens, the zoom setting can also affect them.

Thanks for that info Alan.
I will do a bit more testing to try and narrow it down further.
