      Thanks for the informative post Thomas. Having the reference available
      (thanks Ron for that link!!! )behind the concepts allows the
      interested student of optics to learn more. The TMB FAQ needs updated
      with the posts over the past 3 or so months, that's for sure.

      The bibliography on the TMB site, proposed by cJamesC is a good idea.


      PS: I hope to make use of that 228 you sent me. The skies here at
      noon is so transparent here it's a beautiful pure blue. The downside
      is it's wind as all get out and seeing is in the tank. Clear Sky
      Clock (CSC) says seeing gets good around midnight just the same time
      the transparency goes to zero. Can't win! :-(

      Around 2:00 AM CSC says all is good, so I'll 'see' what happens.
