Re: Relation between dust and aperture setting

Ignoring diffraction effects and extraordinary things that might happen in space with large bodies like planets, neither of which I think we're talking about here, light in a constant medium (like air) travels in a straight line. As long as you insist otherwise, it is not worth discussing further with you.

If you were correct than light shining on the object would create well dined shadow. But it doesn't.

Even laser shined on the moon would produced very large circle there. Not so straight line, is it.

If you want to share a reference on the ball and disk that shows light bends and it's not purely a diffraction effect, then folks could take a look.

Oh, by the way why do YOU think that a small aperture makes dust particles more visible if it's not for the reasons I've outlined.

For the same reason you see sharper when you squint.
