    forgot to say:

    you can change the shaded fields is the chart to whatever you want.
    I just have my scope entered as a default and used arbitrary eyepiece
    numbers to build the worksheet.

    Any suggestion are welcome if anyone has something else that would
    be useful on the chart.

    You'll need Microsoft Office 2007 to use it.

    I can put up a version for office 2003 if needed, let me know
