    Can anyone figure out what is going on with this? I tried following it but I don't speak legalese and just went round in circles and disappeared up my own litigation

    The larger ones above their heads (one partially hidden by that guy's shoulder) appear to be behind them, while the smaller ones to the left appear to be in front of the trees and snow (about the same distance as the figures) and tiny. That's how...

    Yep. Pretty much everything except the yellow thing should be on the closer island. I have video of both the strobing lighthouse and the closer Phare des Baleines, so no doubt about that. I'll upload it when I have time. I went today to Les...

    I don't see the need for an elaborate explanation. People are only going to work as hard as they have to. The military doesn't need to establish and follow good accounting practices, so it hasn't.

    Done! The result is that using the Ciddor equation there's a minor difference in the distortion near the horizon. The Edlen equation produced pixel-identical results to Ciddor [ATTACH] [ATTACH]

    This formula comes from NIST's calculator. The direct link is down (possibly from the government shutdown) but it lives on in Archive.org, and has very detailed math....

    Thank you! Your humidity gradient image does show a noticeable change near the waterline where the laser/light would be located. That is also where any temperature gradient resulting from air/water temperature difference would be strongest. Both...

    I'd agree with Mick on this. I did something similar with the image (adjusted levels to get better contrast) to give better definition to the shape of the bokeh above the man's shoulder. I then cut out the bokeh above it in the image, scaled it...

    I soaked a chunk from the toilet tank in blue dye, the outside is glazed the inside is not after a couple of days there was definite penetration on the unglazed side. I let it soak 2 weeks, I don't think that long was necessary, but the days I...

    The actual effect of an RH gradient depends on the temperature gradient. It might be worth adding an editable humidity gradient just so you can see how little of an effect it has.

    Regarding RH, the refractive index of air is calculated as a function of pressure, temperature and RH in the code as: var n = 1 + 7.86e-4 * p / (273 + t) - 1.5e-11 * RH * (t*t + 160) you can see by the small 1.5e-11 coefficient that RH does not...

    Dr. Andrew Young has a website about atmospheric optics: http://aty.sdsu.edu/~aty/glossary.html#gradient Back in 2106 there was an active thread about Sandor Szekely's Lake Balaton laser experiment. I asked Dr. Young to look at that thread. He...
