Magnitude to luminance conversions and visual brightness of the night sky


Abstract

Summary:

This paper discusses the transformation between the night sky brightness in the Johnson-Cousins V band and its visual luminance for observers with photopic and scotopic adaptation, in terms of the spectral power distribution of the incident light.
