Outstanding article. A very nice mix of your observations, the observations of respected observers, and with a little bit of background info (though I would like more, I realize that that might not be of general interest here). Great job in your citations. The van den Bergh paper in particular is a great read.
I really enjoy this type of article, and would love to see more as opposed to the plethora of equipment discussions. To me this is what it is all about.
Muchas Gracias.
