Default Does the angle of the target ship affect speed taking.

Hi

When you are 90° to a target you have the whole length of the ship as described in the recognition manual to take an accurate timed reading with your stopwatch.

But if a ship is at say 40° then is it as accurate? You are not seeing the whole length of the ship side on, but more of a squashed view. So surely a speed measurement would not be accurate. Or am I a wrong?

Thanks
