Hello All,

Andrew Crumey has written a paper that you might be interested in:
  "Human Contrast Threshold and Astronomical Visibility" (accepted in
  MNRAS). It presents a model which gives visibility predictions somewhat
  different from the standard Hecht-Schaefer model, but in better
  agreement with the laboratory data (Blackwell, Knoll et al). In the
  conclusions, Andrew makes some proposals regarding sky quality
  indicators for public use.


Best regards,
Anthony Tekatch
