first thing, do you think such a device can be technologically feasible?
do you think we need it?

i think if we can build such a device why not?! i think the advantages of it are more than the disadvantages.

All the spectrum of the light.

You can't build a single device that sees the entire spectrum, but you can build a bunch of separate devices that see parts of it and link them together. Same effect.

At some point you would have to sacrifice resolution for bandwidth for the final "viewing"; or you would only be able to view sections of the spectrum at any time.

As an upper limit, I suggest the frequency √ = E/h; where E is the total energy of the universe.

We will need an infinitely long antenna for the low end.
:wink:

square root of what equals E/h?

I just thought the radic looks more like the nu that I know and love.
I meant frequency = E/h
