Need information on use of Beattie Intenscreen

There is some good focusing screen threads on this page grouped under that topic, you'll see it if you scroll down to the bottom of the main discussion page. My own expeience with a Beattie Intenscreen on a 4x5 Linhof is that the brightness was stunning and I often didn't need a darkcloth, BUT there were two major drawbacks for me: the screen blacks out if you move your head much off axis, and when you try and focus critically with a loupe you will find the view is mushy and lacks fine detail.
