I'll be checking specs as I find time. Such things end up in
my medical research. About 10 years ago someone in diabetes
research made some important discoveries by attaching this
kind of equipment to a microscope. It was made possible by
getting enough photons per unit time to make real-time videos
of trafficking of intracellular components in living cells.
This device might find itself useful in similar application,
if you are getting more flux to a sensor beyond this device,
like a CCD, you can get more frames per unit time and/or maybe
be able to efficiently run a filter wheel in front of this.
I really like this!
