NIGHTSEA is the leader in making practical tools to discover and photograph fluorescence in the marine environment. We discovered the power of blue light to produce the most effective fluorescence, paving the way for sport divers to experience the underwater world in a whole new light and providing marine scientists with powerful tools for research.
In photography, a snoot is a tube or similar object that fits over a studio light or portable flash and allows the photographer to control the direction and radius of the light beam. We have created a snoot for the excitation light sources for our Model SFA Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter. While the beam from […]
I (NIGHTSEA founder Dr. Charles Mazel) was contacted by an old friend to provide fluorescence excitation filters for the LED lights on a new underwater exploration vehicle. Michael Lombardi is the creator of Oceans of Opportunity, of which Lombardi Undersea is a part. I got to know Mike during a large-scale research program on underwater optics being conducted […]
