    Also interested in axonhelper – for determining views. I’m just getting started with this. Anyone know of a place with scaling and rotation data for different views? Or ellipse exposures?

    I bought this book in hard cover back in 2004. I wish that the book (which costed a fortune) would’ve included the PDF edition as well.
