Example text

It is this scenic quality also that is responsible for the unmistakable realism binoculars are noted for. ) Binocular Vision 37 In sum, although it is true that binocularity is not absolutely essential to sight per se, this does not mean that the use of both eyes is a mere luxury, especially when we are trying to make sense of alien sights in the dark. The binocular advantage consists not so much in what we see, since technically we can see the same things through larger monocular instruments, as in the way we see.

2. Thus, my 10-inch binocular should be the equal of a 12-inch monocular (in reality it seems to do a little better). How is it that the use of both eyes can have such a salutary effect, not just on light-gathering power but on overall quality of vision? Binocular vision is plainly superior to monocular vision. This should not be surprising: we humans are fundamentally binocular animals; binocularity is our normal and natural mode of vision. In normal binocular vision the brain takes the two eyes’ imperfect raw images and integrates them to form a single clearer, sharper, brighter, and more coherent final image.

There are, of course, intermediate types of concentration. For example, a galaxy can be evenly to sharply concentrated. The second component of the concentration is the degree. This is the extent of the difference between the intensity of the light at the edge and at the center of the galaxy, independently of the type of concentration. So the galaxy in the above example can be evenly to sharply slightly concentrated, or it can be evenly to sharply very concentrated. Broadly Broadly to evenly Evenly Evenly to sharply Sharply Diffuse/unconcentrated Hardly concentrated Slightly concentrated Moderately concentrated (Pretty/fairly) concentrated Very concentrated Extremely concentrated Shape of Galaxy or Other Deep-Sky Object Round Slightly elongated (Moderately) elongated Pretty elongated Very elongated (Very) elongated to edge-on Nearly edge-on/fat edge-on Edge-on Fairly thin edge-on Thin edge-on Size of Deep-Sky Object 23 Size of Deep-Sky Object Tiny Very very small Very small Small Moderately small Moderate size Moderately large Large Very large The described size is relative to the type of object, since the various types have widely differing size ranges.
