When you have the output you want, copy it and paste into the following:

AbsoluteOptions[<<paste here>>, {PlotRange, ViewCenter, ViewPoint,  
ViewVertical}]

which will give you the values of these options resulting from your  
manipulations. There are quite a lot of AbsoluteOptions apart from these;  
you might wish to specify some additional ones if you've e.g. adjusted the  
image size and want to preserve this as well.
