That's cool.

I tried it several days ago and it changed my table from "average" to "easy", and Dave's 7' Valley from "easy" to "average". Works fine now with your corrections, and makes it way...

C'mon, Dave, it's still pool. It may be easier, but it's never easy. Lol

Yeah, I just noticed that about the PAF requiring the use of the figures in the third row (which is definitely the right way to go IMHO). Plus, I really could have "nudged" the shelf depth in either...

Dave, I have an interesting subjective evaluation to bring up regarding my table.

You want to get straight down, but you also want to get as high up as possible. Best bet would be to use a short telephoto lens (85mm - 135mm with a 35mm format) and get about 10' above it to...

Looks like you are only in 256 color mode, that's why you are getting such severe posterization.

Yes, that's exactly what I intended.

Varying cushion widths will give different results when using Dr. Dave's method to arrive at a PAF. It would have been pretty easy to lay it right along the...

TSF = 8'+ = 0.95
PSF = 5" = 0.95
PAF = 1 1/8" (144) = 1.14
PSF = 1 3/4" = 1.00
