What possibly so much strongly characterizes this treatise is the shut interplay of a geometrical research of sunshine and experimental reasoning. Ibn al-Haytham performed his experiments in a scientific method by means of various all which may be replaced: the form and dimension of the aperture, the focal size of the digital camera obscura, the gap and form of the celestial our bodies. this fashion, he completed a radical realizing. This paintings represents a decisive step in either the background of optics and the applying of the experimental approach that was once simply as effective in medieval Islam as today.
