Re: Seaman's Eye - Article Thought
Wonder how to best make practical use of this info on the way the eye works?
This is truly an important and under discussed topic.
For night work the hopeful slowdown in middle east hostilities will free up scads of night vision apparatus. When we went into Afghanistan and Iraq the makers of night vision shifted all output to military and the latest technology (Generation-3) has only been available as used or a trickle of new at grossly inflated prices. It's nice to be able to see the loom of a ships lights over the horizon long before the eye can spot it or make out navigation lights at a distance in rainy squally hazy Wx.
This is the first lesson ye should learn: There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, it doesn't behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us.
