Some of the UV images which I recorded just for a few tests...
Using a 50mm quartz fluorite lens:
Using a 300mm catadioptric lens:
Rudbeckia close-up showing its prominent UV pattern:
Tea candle inside showing how sensitive this system is:
It took a bit of experimenting to get this right, but now I have a range of useful lenses for this, working from far away up to close-up.
This system shows quite some usefulness, especially under low light conditions, or when it is about recording deeper in UV where a normal full spectrum camera is not sensitive anymore.
I have done similar with a different amplified camera system before which did not allow to have an external camera attached, with just a TV output HERE
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
