(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.
