I have read a bunch of stuff about lighting Cyanos...Mercury Vapor,
Sodium Halide (?), Blacklights, etc on unblinkingeye, other places...

I have some "full spectrum" 48" fluorescent bulbs that purportedly
have a color temperature of around ~5000K. I have used them in the
past for digital product photography (which have worked great) and was
wondering if I can reuse them for cyanos. These are GE bulbs from
Home Depot, nothing special. I also have much more expensive 5500K
(again, purportedly) fluorescent screw-in type bulbs which I can also
use except they won't be as "even" and will basically require a "rack"
of them to light the area (i'm doing 8x10's and bigger)
