Well, that's pretty much what I see them doing.

Of course since the distance changes as the angle changes, so do the 
gaps (because you computed each of them to be 5% of the total distance, 
from sphere center to start of cylinder).

Or I'm misunderstanding you, and what you're really complaining about 
are the illusionary effects, due to the spheres' "center of light" not 
coinciding with their center of mass - and likewise for the cylinders' 
"axis of light" not coinciding with their "axis of mass".
