We present a rigorous analysis and numerical evidence indicating that a recently developed methodology for detecting unstable periodic orbits is capable of yielding all orbits up to periods limited only by the computer precision. In particular, we argue that an efficient convergence to every periodic orbit can be achieved and the basin of attraction can be made finite and accessible for typical or particularly chosen initial conditions.
