Anyone wanting to remove the IR filter from the OV9650. 
1. Unscrew the lens. keep track of the number of threads, as you will need to put it back in the same spot
2. Using pliers or tweezers pop out the lens. 
3. Thread the lens back in. be careful of debris falling onto the sensor. 
4. Enjoy your IR sensitive camera. (Note: IR != Thermal)
