How to crop patch around SIFT(or other detector) point?

I want to crop image patch around detector point but I don't know how to determine size and scale (maybe orientation also matters?)

Is it makes sense or special point is only can be described by descriptor? I need this patches to visually inspect result of detections.

I want to get something like this

There is no evident size of "patch" around descriptors for SIFT. The number of octave is deduce from the image resolution, but if you only need a debug/feedback visualization, used the size you want... It doesn't really matter, as your patches are centered around the keypoints. If you want to do it fast, I suggest using a ROI to copy the parts of image to a destination buffer.

what if I take something like Harris corner detector(no scale invariance) can I determine the size of patch?

The octave is usually been set as 8 and there are also different scales of the original picture, this could be regard as filtered be different Gaussian filters. The patch I saw most is set as 44 or 22, each contains 44--66 pixals.
