Target Star 6 - Video Display Of Photon Counts


Very low photon-count video "snow".

Low photon-count video "snow".

Moderate photon-count video "snow".

High photon-count video "snow".

Very high photon-count video "snow".

Dummy Data

No this is not the Milky Way! The above are video "snow" displays for a variety of photon-counts. The photon "snow" was captured off a large video monitor with a video camera. Each bright spot represents a detected photon. The PMT photon-counter was operated in its most sensitive mode. The noise is random but the eye will always perceive patterns on the screen.
