Ely, it's sitting on the sidelines until I can get my fusor to run steadily for a while so I cna make some longer counts. According to my measurements and calculations, it is 140 times less sensitive to fast neutrons.

It's an Epson PC700, a bargain nowadays at ~$350-$400 because it's getting a little obsolete. It has 1280 pixel resolution but no zoom. Great for situations where you can position the camera at the optimum distance from the subject. It's "native" resolution is significantly better than what you see on my web site...I'm trying to save you guys some time with smaller .jpgs.
