So these are a couple of the Falcon 9 launch
I didn't have my tripod on this trip, but thanks to the Olympus OM-D EM-1 Image stabilisation I managed to get a couple freehand shots.
Sky lit up brighter than I could have ever anticipated so I just let the camera auto adjust.

Great shots Scoop! Those Atlas pics are worthy of blowing up and framing they're so good!

Did you attend a HPR launch over there Scoop?

I was all set to attend a NEFAR launch during my trip but a rainstorm went through the day before and the launch had to be cancelled :( . I took a Falcon 9 model across to fly. I can now say my Falcon 9 model has flown to 39k' :D

We went to the Fort Meyers Rocketry club in Labelle. We went to catch up with some old Rocketry buddy’s and figured since it was a 2.5 hour drive each way, built the rocket in the hotel room and flew it on a K327 White Cloud long burn to about 7,000’.

Haha, yes, have had many a rocket reach that magical 39,000’
