That and learning how to use reverse and the motion of your target to swing around, and lock them down with a tractor beam is also pretty key. Evasive Maneuver also combined with reverse will almost instantly get you on target as well.
Learning those 2-3 tricks is what makes the dread cannon build potent. It's not for everyone though, takes a great deal of practice. At the worst just get a set of blue mk XI cannons/turrets and play around with em, a dhc and dc couple singles and 4 turrets, some normal mode STF's and some fleet friendly pvp and you should be in a good spot to learn how to maximize your movements.
i sense a god in the making once we get the separation console in the very near future.
seriously considering a full cannon build once it go's live
