I’ve tried shooting panoramic images with the CL and rarely do they turn out well. Looking at the image in LR it is all chopped up vertically. What am I doing wrong?

Switch on the artificial horizon and turn in a straight line. Set the exposure to manual.

Or use a tripod for best panoramas.  They do take some planning of the sequence.

Don't choose a too-wide angle lens as the edge distortions won't blend.  Lots of overlap between frames.

Manual exposure is definitely required.

Actually, in-camera panorama modes do quite well hand-held. On a tripod it is not that easy to swivel at the rate that the camera requires.

Try not to tilt the camera up and include about a third of a frame overlap, and the CL works well even with 180 horizontal degree views.

If you need a large vertical coverage, overlap frames even more and also include a untilled level sweep in the set.

The panorama function on the CL does work, but I invariably find that the quality is not as good as simply taking a series of 3-5 overlapping photos as you manually pan the camera across the scene.  This can be done with the camera horizontal or vertical, and I've posted examples of both.  I find it best to overlap 1/3 of the previous image on each of the next frames, and then I merge them in Photoshop.   Unless you are using very slow shutter speeds, a tripod isn't necessary.
