You can even use the STS to measure transmission, reflection, and stray light sensitivity.
Precautions should be taken to eliminate stray light from the test environment by the use of adequate shielding and baffling.
Initially astronomers became worried about the effects of stray light and glare spoiling their view of the night sky, but as they began to campaign for lighting to be directed where it is needed and not splayed all over the place, many other problem areas became obvious.
Distance between scope and night-vision lens is not critical, and ATN provides bellows-type connectors that block stray light that can impair the image.
The patent pending design makes the most of the optical efficiency of the parabolic reflector by putting the LED within the reflector's focal spot which means that all stray light is redirected and refocused back into the reflector to amplify intensity resulting in the need for fewer LEDs.
The AQ6370C achieves a 76-dB stray light suppression ratio and is guaranteed by Yokogawa to achieve this level of performance, an industry first.

Illingworth and Bouwens note that because most of the candidate distant galaxies that were identified by the Windhorst team lie near known, bright galaxies, the team may have been confused by stray light from these bright galaxies.
According the International Dark-Sky Association, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the nighttime environment, the adverse effects of artificial light, which include sky glow, glare (a blinding effect caused by stray light that reduces the visibility of a target), light trespass (unwanted light that shines onto your property), light clutter, decreased visibility at night and energy waste, can cause light pollution.
The Safire2 includes Tecan's exclusive quad4 monochromator(tm) technology, which blocks stray light and the resulting background noise by a factor of 106 times more than typical dual monochromator-based designs, providing improved sensitivity, accuracy, flexibility and speed.
Lambda is an industry leader in stray light analysis, illumination system design and analysis, and custom software development.
