The Blue Light II

Last month, I tried to remove the yellow radiation-induced haze from my 50mm f/1.4 Pentax Super-Takumar using an incandescent bug zapper bulb.

That didn't work well at all.

But last weekend, I used a T5-mount fluorescent UV bulb for a money detector (PHP 200) plus an electronic ballast for it (another PHP 200) and.. after three days of UV, the lens is clear! (well, almost).

Details here.
