Sorry, I stand corrected. I commented on the wrong line, not 592. Of 
course, "scale" is missing here. But when looking into this a bit more 
carefully, this whole paragraph is a bit strange, and it seems I missed 
something here. The meaning of the number 180 is still a bit of a 
riddle. So I will rewrite it. Thanks for making me aware of it.
