Thanks for your comments, Mr mental4astro,

It is hard to know what is the very best technique to adopt, when using the eye+brain+telescope system.

I hope that some of the other very experienced observers will make a serious attempt to clearly codify (hopefully in English, and not in Klingon) "what they do" at the eyepiece, and then write up the results in this thread.

It would be really nice to compare techniques between a large number of experienced observers.

Somewhat more objective could be the results of an experiment, in which we line up 10 experienced observers, behind 10 identical optical/mechanical systems, and then we get them to do several different and defined sequences of things with their "eye and mind and telescope";
in order to compare and contrast what can be seen with each sequence of activities.
