Queen Vision

I just cannot do a Queen Scan in one step. Can anybody do this? I need 3 steps: First a short-range scan within a Knight's reach: All squares except the 8 of the Knight Circle. This needs sort of an inverse scan, which I find extremely difficult. Maybe this will improve with my X-Ray Training. What I can spot quite fast is the Queen Diamond, that is the short range 5x5 square without the 4 corners. Second a Rook Scan, third a Bishop Scan. My idea is to do these scans faster and faster until they merge to one single Queen Scan.

could you clarify the queen diamond with all of the directions and corners and stuff? I got sort of confused and lost in your descriptions.
