Quote:Quote:"This thing has great resolution. How many pixels does it have?" Cool question. In this case, your EYE is acting in place of the camera, so the each individual receptor cell is like a pixel. If you assume you are only using the rods (non-color sensitive cells on your retina) in the dark, then there are about 120 million rods. If a megapixel is 1 million pixels, that is about 120 megapixels. :-)Clear skies,-- Shane
