Stan is THE man and has answered the question. I am no expert. But I thought I would explain what I do anyway and see what he says.How do you find A or C? You split the half or some other method?
When you say: "Then I locate the CTE line", do you just move your eyes to see it, or do you move your whole body, or just head, can you explain that a little bit too?
Thank you in advance.
This is how I see it but I also know people perceive things differently. I will use a left cut as an example. Opposite for right cut.
For a left cut, I start establishing the visual of LCBE to OB aim point A with my LEFT EYE. I move my head/body until I can see aim point A with the left eye AND the CCB to OB right edge appears to my RIGHT eye. Then I freeze, establish the vertical cue ball center line and then swing the cue to center cue ball.
If I am aligned correctly to aim point A (left eye) visual, the CTE visual (right eye) will appear with no head or eye movement. In other words, aim point A is not correct until I can also see the CTE line to right object ball edge. It is really one complete visual perception. The offset is created by starting with left eye over aim point A first.
Sorry if this is confusing. It reminds me of trying to communicate Buddhist concepts. Sometimes perceptions can't be explained well by words. You have to experience it to understand. Once you see the alignment of aim point A and the CTE line together as one visual, you will see what I am struggling to express.
