Thanks,

Josh, not meaning to argue an obviously correct statement you have made, and no less from the author of T Point himself, but I am again looking at my copy of the T Point mnual, page 35, where it very clearly says re recalibration: "recalibration does not alter or change the value of static terms. Only the offset terms IH, ID, and CH are changed." And, on page 32 "for portable mounts, a new calibration run must be performed each time the mount is setup." And "for permanent installations, in order to reuse a model, the physical setup of the mount cannot change, etc...."

In my copy of the manual I can find no statement re recalibrating into a portable mount so that option, given my permanent mount, never entered my head as a possibility even though the option presents itself in TSX when recalibrating. It would certainly be nice to have these sorts of things spelled out in the manual. Now I am glad I made the incorrect statement earlier because otherwise I never would have known.
