This is just a quick picture. Should this illustrate what you want? I think its just fine.
To minimize the bow, try zooming to a standard 50mm setting and keep the rectangle of interest within a concentric circle that is roughly 67% of the available lens radius. This should minimize lens effects.
I'm with scynar on this one. Get somewhere well off the ends of the zoom range and shoot a larger area than you need. That allows you to crop and throw away the corners/edges yet still get the picture you want and fairly quickly, too. That's one of the advantages of the G9 you have so many pixels you can throw some away and still have a nice image left.
If you try this let us know how it works.
caleb thank you for your help, i really appreciate it! also so scynar...that works considerably better! i also just have to work the tripod a bit more to get the right angle but your suggestion really reduced the bowing. you all have been a great help, thanks so much! i'll post some examples ASAP.
