This Amazing Camera Can Capture Both the Sun and the Stars In Broad Daylight

Excellent article.

A challenge for you

Why am I telling you all this? Because they want to build a version of this camera for normal photographers. Not for instrumentation or satellites, but real people. They want to see what a professional would do with something like this applied to normal subjects, but they need to know first if there's any interest among you, the people. That's why they have asked us to pass the word around.
The new sensor for the 645D mkII ?

Kewl idea! Well, super-cooled anyway. In liquid helium. Building a consumer version could be... challenging... "Mom, the camera broke, and so did Dad!"
