    tizeye- I kept my tripod short..the closer it is to the ground the less it will shake. and I buried the legs half way into the sand. Then I wrap the strap around a leg because the strap blowing will cause it to shake too.

    I love your shot. Where were you shooting from? I thought about trying to shoot actual launch photos instead of a long exposure, but I just wanted to watch.

    Here are some moon shots from the launch also...

    I love your shot. Where were you shooting from? I thought about trying to shoot actual launch photos instead of a long exposure, but I just wanted to watch.

    Nice shots of the moon. Unfortunately, I missed the actual rise as made a quick jaunt back to the car to get things I forgot - flashlight, binoculars, and jacket.

    Not being one of the 100 or so lucky members of the general public that gets on-site launch tickets by random drawing, I was with the masses about as close as you can get - due west of the pad along US1. That is still 5 miles away, but thanks to the waterway and undeveloped NASA property it is an unobstructed view. Didn't know what to expect so put my bike in the trunk, but was able to park 2 blocks away with no problem getting there 2.5 hours before the launch. Leaving was a different story. It took me over 2 hours to return the 35 miles home.

    Very impressive shot considering you were 80 miles away, assuming it was your local shoreline. Given that it was a night shot, the long exposure was probably your best alternative, unless you had two cameras. Why risk missing it? I almost did the 2 camera option and buying a roll of film - using a cheap manual 400mm on my canon. Given the wind, glad I didn't. Did switch the mount over to nikon and use the 400mm on the D40, but didn't want to risk manual guessing and used the 55-200 with the autofocus disabled. It wasn't a time to experiment.

    This is a shot of another launch from my front yard. Obviously it was daylight supporting the high shutter speed. At night, wouldn't even think about it.

    Oh, I was only 10 miles away, on the beach at Patrick Air-force Base. I am hoping to get up close for the next one though for sure!

    How's this?

    This photo was in very bad light. It was in full shade through glass. I does seem to have a green color cast to it. I try to post all my pic,s as taken except I might crop some. I'm not to good at post processing.

    VR version looks pretty good. Thanks.
    I took this before I knew what white ballance was.
