Thanks for the write-up. I have one of those gadgets too and really enjoy it. Recently, through parfocalizing I've come up with all kinds of additional mischief I can get into with the turret (such as conducting tricksy "semi blind" tests regarding color tone and/or transmission of different eyepieces).
One thing I would add to your excellent write up is this: I've compared the scatter properties of the TEc turret mirror to many other mirrors and prisms, including my A-P Maxbright by measuring green laser contact spot diameters. The TEC mirror has the least scatter (smallest contact spot) of any mirror I tested, and is even superior to some of the prisms I've tested in this regard.
A very nice addition.
