Paul an excellent write-up. You forgot only one point that comes to mind.
The controller needs to be as close as possible to the battery.
If the controller is close to the panels and a long distance from the panels, like Loudhams, Nottingham did with mine prior to delivery. then there will be a voltage drop on the long wires.
This voltage will be added to the battery volts and thus reduce the maximum charge possible.
