Coordinator notes: I am pretty sure this is excelsa, not oblentaria, for the following reasons: Time of flight is correct for excelsa, not for oblentaria, lines are very gently curved as in excelsa whereas they are more jaggedly bent in oblentaria. I have both, and think it is excels. A new addition, by the way.
