"RE: Auto Focus Confusion"

Now that we have some beautiful weather here in swVA we should get some F15 flyovers today and I'll give the Auto setting a try. If not I'll practice on some hawks.

My problem is the initial target acquisition. I can get the flying jet in the viewfinder, but locking on with just the one center sensor is challenging. My understanding is that 21-point and 51-point options both require initial lock-on with just the one center sensor before the other sensors kick in to hold focus. Do I have that right?

Since the jet is the only object in a clear blue sky background I am hoping the Auto setting will find it and lock-on faster than I can.
