How to Photograph the Space Shuttle
We had a great program at our astronomy club last night. Stan Honda came and did a talk and slideshow about the work he did covering the launches of the Space Shuttle! He attended 11 launches! He showed photographs of the camera setups he used. The cameras that were closest to the launch had to be mounted in protective boxes on tripods, triggered automatically by sound. Stan could photograph from 2 or 3 miles away, using long lenses on cameras he could trigger himself. His photographs were just spectacular! He always draws a crowd when he speaks.
