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.
