    Do you agree with my recently posted explanation of this?
    (That this happens because of lower resulution
    of the eye in darkness).
    Or you have some other explanation?
    How about star index check?
    
    Many writers say that it is as precise (some say more
    precise) as the Sun checks. This contradicts to my
    experience.
    
    Alex.
