TIFF image support is coming soon!
August 2013 (101st anniversary of discover) update: Microscopy Today (July 2013 edition) published my article on cosmic ray particles imaging. Please see
Cosmic rays image shows 83.33 hours of cosmic ray particles striking a Hamamatsu ORCA-ER digital CCD camera. Each of the three color channels are 10,000 exposures, 10 seconds each. Camera background has been removed and gamma adjusted for better contrast. August 7, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of cosmic rays. I was employed at University of Miami at the time of the image acquisition.
