Look pretty much like mine. Yeah, the sun does look very round.... and that's about all you can see with these. I think it will be better than the pin hole in the box, though.
The trick to lining up the sun in the scope is to use it's shadow on the ground.I was trying to find it with the sun spot filter in the telescope, couldn't get the thing aimed at the sun, looking all over, couldn't hit it with that dark filter in.
First.... One question......<100mW, 532nm. Class III green laser pointer [as labeled].
Someone aimed it at a piece of rough plastic that i was holding and the beam was reflected to my eyes for 1 sec. Will this cause injury?
His distance was 1 meter away. Piece of plastic was 40 cm away from my eyes.
4 days ago.
My current symptoms:
Simple floaters/afterimages specially in dark areas.
Hazy eyes with strong/bright colors.
I went to Ophthalmologist 1 day after exposure.
He said my retina and fovea are ok.
visual acuity is normal.
Will these symptoms fade away?
47 years ago... you wouldn't have listened...:eg:Wish I had someone to tell me how to do that 47 years ago. It was a cheap telescope, small 2 inch diameter one, if that.
-2.75 with -0.75CYL and -3.25 with -0.50CYL, I feel you. Anything past about 1.5ft is a blur, not even arms length away. Stuff is super sharp up close for now at least!I have always had severe myopia, so I've never has good far vision, but if I remove my glasses, I can focus on anything four inches from my eyes. So, I rarely need magnification to see small things.
Damn Paul, it sounds like you're talking about my experience in grade school, only I didn't realize that I couldn't see the same as everyone else till I was in third grade.It's funny that because I was in school in the 1950s that it wasn't until I was in second grade before they realized I had a vision problem. My daughter inherited my poor vision but I had her checked at age three. My second grade teacher told my parents she thought I was retarded because I couldn't see the chalk board....but, being a little kid who didn't know any better, I didn't realize everyone saw things more clearly than I did. I feel for kids who grew up at the turn of the 20th century. How many smart kids were labeled stupid because they couldn't see?
