Stereo camera calibration is looking good.

and I now have a method for calibrating the pan and tilt mechanism using the same data.

so it looks like I'm on track for the first test run soon.

As an aside I've also ordered a couple of 8 megapixel cameras, so that I can evaluate whether higher resolutions will provide significantly better quality stereo vision. There's always a tradeoff between speed and quality, and it might turn out that higher resolutions do not add much to the mapping quality, especially over short ranges of a few metres.
