i mean seems evident a dome is intended as a camera obscura even oculus in latin means eye

but how is it posible that knowledge isnt any more?

what sense does it make to put a flat lens in the oculus so theres no effect any more? why they dont put the right optics oculus in domes?

it would appear to people as walking of clouds , quite appropiate for the place

well i just found an obscure reference:

Please post a specific reference, a link to a book is not satisfactory.
