What do you mean by:

I would think that it would be the same as bottling anything else, depending on whether you want sparkling cider or still. I if you are looking for still (uncarbonated) cider you may want to make sure that you use some campden and potasium sorbate to kill the yeast off, so you don't end up carbonating it.

You should make sure that you are following proper sanitation procedures and whatnot.

cheers

If you use a bottling wand, it will fill to the right amount of headspace. Just fill to the top and remove the wand, and it will be perfect. But, you said you weren't using tradition bottling techniques, so it's hard to answer!
