As I was headed for the Cape I received notice of a 5 hour launch delay. I had a decision to make whether I'd return 90 minutes home or finish 40 minutes to the coast and somehow kill 4 hours. I'm glad I decided to go through with the shot. I got a great place right by the water on the Banana River. I set up 4 cameras, two crops, a full frame and a GoPro knockoff for video. As the clock counted down the last 5 seconds I was surprised that the motors seemed to start early and I felt behind in the process. The video was already running so I locked the cable releases on the Pentax and the Canon full-frame. I tried a manipulation on the Canon that didn't work out, and the T-3 was off task for the launch as its cable release broke. This shot is from the Pentax. I managed to also caputure the booster landings and the T-3 captured the moment of booster separation. A pretty good night's work! I drove home and went into post at about 5:30 AM.
