      *squeezes Phosphor but then realizes I cannot squeeze in the process of being squeezed by said Phosphor* :P

  2. It was so pretty outside, I had to take this afternoon off from work. Drove all the way to my new property, marked the spot where I want to build a house, enjoyed the scenery and returned home before dark.  

    Worth it  :squee:

      Very cool. Did you mark a spot to build the observatory? :pinkiehat:

    2. Phosphor

      Phosphor

      Not yet. It'll probably be close to the house, since the spot is on top of a hill.  :flutterhat:

  3. Pegasus rank... Ooooo, so close!  :P

      I know!! This pony can’t wait to spread her wings finally! :yay:

  4. Close game but my Saints fall short. 48 to 46. Good game 49ers.

     

  5. Looks like that dreary December weather is here. Lots of clouds and rain in the forecast.  :mellow:

    1. Snow

      Snow

      We're envious down here, nothing but heat, drought and fire for the land down under :worry:

      Be careful what you wish for. You might get a “historic snowstorm” once a year like here on Long Island.

      @Yoshi89, Historic snowstorm down here? That would be like 5 inches of snow.  :twi:

  6. It's kinda cool how photographs appear blank when viewed with a near IR camera.  :o

      @PiratePony, It kinda is, especially when seeing blank pictures in the hallway or on the fridge.  :unsure:

      @R.D.Dash, phosphor-coated ponies can change their colors or appear invisible, well except to thermal cameras  ;)

  11. I found out that the plug on my old mercury vapor lamp is damaged. Gonna replace it this weekend and look into that issue with the color balance under that light source.  :dash:

    Street lamp talk... here comes Cinny!  :P

    1. Splashee

      Splashee

      Okay, I will try to take photos of my mercury vapor lamps, showing off the issue with the green color, using different cameras as well.

      Just note one thing, all mercury vapor bulbs get greener color with age, even the coated ones! There are also color temperature differences of the ones sold in Europe (Philips HPL-N), which has nothing to do with the green color.

       

      I have never seen a clear mercury vapor bulb in action, meaning all I have seen are green images, and I refuse to believe they are actually green. I am not trying to make you prove me wrong here. I am just looking for a way to photo mercury vapor as true to what the human eyes can see.

      I have seen coated bulbs broken, meaning the UV light leaks out, and the strong strong white glow from the tube inside. No green color, just white blinding light, and my eyes burn of pain (of course I don't look at it).

       

       

      If you want Cinny to see a targeted status at me, you have to tag him (he doesn't have time to go through my profile to find it). Hi @Lil'Cinnamon :bedeyes:

    2. Phosphor

      Phosphor

      Hmm, I don't have a phosphor coated Hg bulb. The two bulbs I have are clear. I'll see what I can do. 

      Yeah, ya definitely don't want to stare at a Hg lamp with the outer shell damaged. I have a low pressure Hg bulb that produces UV-C light (and ozone). I wear full clothing and uv blocking goggles when doing photography with it.  :sealed:

       

  12. Happy birthday, Narcissus!  :kirin:

      I probably wouldn't go to parties like that either... :adorkable:

  14. Hey, Shadow Beam! Haven't seen ya around here in a while.

    Hope things are going well for ya  :coco:

  15. Twilight Sparkle borrowed one of my cameras for a project. Something about observing objects in different wavelengths of light. :ooh:

    Her camera holding spell is a bit shaky. Even alicorns need a tripod  ^_^

    Filter swaps in front of the lens:

    1. UV/IR Block (how typical cameras/our eyes see things)
    2. Unfiltered (Visible light + Near IR)
    3. Near IR (850-1200nm)

  18. Ah, the dreaded vapor lock... I dealt with this issue for a long time with my truck. Electric fuel pump conversion and insulating the lines fixed it for me.

      Never heard of vapor lock before this :o

    3. Phosphor

      Phosphor

      @Lucky Bolt, Not to worry. Matt is immune to vapor lock thanks to fuel injection's higher pressures and the presence of a return line. :fluttershy:

      It's an issue that plagues engines with carburetors. The fuel will literally boil inside the lines and carburetor if the engine compartment gets too hot, which will then stall the engine.

      Ahh. Maybe I would have caught that if I actually watched the video :adorkable:

  19. Hope you're doing alright  :kindness:
