Howie Glatter Holographic Attachment?

Do you folks think the Howie Glatter Holographic Attachment that produces a grid pattern over the secondary is a good idea? I'm thinking of getting the BLUG anyway
Thanks for your thoughts!

What I found easiest is when you can center the secondary under the focuser while the primary mirror is out of the scope. It just makes things easier to see and what you see makes more sense. If you don't want to remove the primary, simply hang a white piece of paper behind the secondary so that it blocks the reflection from the primary.
Doing it this way, there is no need for a white piece of paper on the opposite side of the focuser. The dark contrast of the tube and the white reflection of the paper in the secondary mirror makes it clear as night and day to see how centered and round the secondary is.
