BTW, there's another huge advantage in using the centiradians scale instead of turning the periscope, which is that you can use several chronos at the same time.

Of course, you can do it like I did in my video, measuring real and lateral speeds simultaneously. But you can also multi-check your measurements! I recently started to use one chronometer to measure lateral speed from -4 to +4 centirad, as in the video, but also from -5 to +3, and -3 to +5, which gives me 3 time values! I can then check that they are similar, and take the median one, or an average. I then do the same for real speed, using -1, 0 and +1 marks. It's a real gain in accuracy!
