Wow, what a thorough, well written review. Very informative, thank you. I'm left wanting to get a couple of BM's.

Two quick things, your comment about uncomfortable eye positioning with 82 degree eyepieces is spot on in my limited newby experience.

Also, for some reason, the column headers on the first table (Section 1) are not showing. One can infer what the columns are, but maybe you meant to show them?

Not sure how to make the column and row borders visible. I dipped into the html code that was generated when I pasted the review into the system and put a border around the entire table, but not sure how to add the code so all the internal borders show.

They show ok for me?

An edit to an image of the table rather than an actual table might help if others have the same problem?
