  1. Bullshit. That is EXACTLY what the plates the man who discovered Pluto
    was using them for! He was hired because no scientist wanted to perform
    the painstaking and laborious task required.
    Brightness wasn't a factor. The plates were specifically used to FIND
    previously undiscovered moving objects. Contrast ratio was the important
    factor.

    The task being done being the dependent factor. In THIS case,
    brightness was NOT a factor, was NOT gauged, and the ONLY thing being
    sought was a new, previously undiscovered object.

    The discovery of Pluto was the result:

    The plates shown were reversed in the wiki page, but Mr. Tombaugh
    examined negatives.

    Think carefully about this and you may learn something.
    Did the person undertake a new photographic survey or did he use the
    ovservatory's archival material?
    If the latter, do you think the original purpose of the astronomers who
    produced the material may have had something to do with whether
    negatives or positives were produced?

  3. IDIOT! HE created the plates on a daily basis! HE made the entire
    archive!

    WAKE UP!
    HE WAS THE ONLY RESEARCHER, you dingledorf!
