It's just past 2am and I can't sleep. It's hot and humid here in Seattle.

Reading about T-Rays has me wondering what range of radiation energy can digital images work with (I'm thinking standard CMOS and CCD imaging)? I'm sure they have digital x-ray machines, and they have digital cameras tuned (or can be tuned) for infrared photography. (most digital cameras have an infrared filter built in, which can be removed, if you are brave enough to open you camera. And there are lenses for digital cameras to block most everything but the infrared.

It has been a reoccurring thought of mine, that they need to make an optional file format, and digital camera's to suport said file format, that records information extending above and below visiable light. And then a utility that would alow you to color shift up and down the spectrum. Basicly allowing you to do a color and an infrared picture in one.

Applications for this? I think it would allow more creative freedom for artists. And I can't help but think of how this would turn a normal telescope to an infrared telescope, allowing great advances in amatuer astronomy.

Time for some water, and then to try to return to sleep.
