help with full frame fisheye

I'm fairly new to this list and I'm still trying to get comfortable
using both PanoramaTools and PTgui. My immediate concern is trying
to use images taken with a canon 15mm full frame fisheye on a Canon
My first question is wether it's possible to create cubic panoramas
using 7 or 8 shots around plus one up and one down with this lens.
Right now, I'm having a difficult time creating even a basic
cylindical panorama with this lens. What is the actual HFOV of this
lens? I've tried several numbers between 77 degrees and 136 degrees
with out success. My resulting jpeg images are just a mishmash of
non-connecting picture parts.
Also, is it necessary to do a panotools correction (radial shift)
in photoshop before importing the images to PTgui, and what would the
typical settings be for that type of correction?
I'm hoping that someone out there who has used this lens and camera
combination can provide some advise or share a script that would give
me a good starting point. I would be extremely grateful for any
help at all.
