Yea you are correct. Also the coatings applied to the glass. (phosphorus) But absolutely, metals are vaporized in the lamps, I forgot about that part. Regardless, it's the different temperatures of those "burning" metals that create, give us the various different spectrum.I think it’s a gas, not a filament.......
I think the problem with the CMH is that it's got components of all the spectrum, but it's bunched together in the 550-650 range, and missing some of the intensity required on both extreme's of the spetrum. It's also horribly inefficient.
custom tailored spectrum are a reality people, and it's right around the corner, it's here in fact, but it's just getting into focus.
Yea, didn't know that, actually. These must be recent technology, I bet. I know there seems to be some technology progress with fluorescent as well. Because those T5's are a different animal from the older stuff, I could tell that straight away after looking it over carefully, but I didn't notice at first.you are thinking of the old cmh. The new ones are much more efficient than hps. I would put the 315 intensity equal to a 450 hps if there was such a thing but with a full sunlight spectrum and a 93 cri.
And thats the single ended phiilips. There is double ended too.
I’m a late night guy and on the east coast........ I generally don’t go to sleep til between 3-4am so late night I am usually listening to music and typing in one of my different threads. When you get old, you don’t need as much sleep, as I usually take a short nap in the afternoon. LolSSHZ, sorry to hear there is a sickly girl among your batch. maybe some chicken soup could cheer her up, lol. looking at the times you post either you are in a different time zone (EST) or you are an early riser. I am usually awake at 4:30am for work so I peek on to check latest up dates.
yes, the afternoon nap is always great.I’m a late night guy and on the east coast........

What music? This is my guess.
I listen to a wide range of stuff, as I have about 500 songs “liked” on YouTube and usually just go thru that stuff....... my favorite stuff is Paul westerburg and or the replacements, plus Springsteen, old Motown stuff like the 4 tops and Marvin gay, Jackson brown, some 60’s British band stuff like the Hollies,etc.,..........basically a wide range of older stuff and not much new crap. As a 50 year guitar player, I tend to listen to things I can play. No rap, disco, boy bands, etc......that stuff just disgusts me. Lol
WHAT! I thought they were like 50 or so myself and I was already floored by the kindness. If it’s not too late already, feel free to PM and we can talk about it. I don’t want you to regret giving it up after the fact.I see that pen I'm gifting Mah is selling on Amazon for $99- WTF was I thinking, I thought it was a $30 pen. LOL
