Second Launch: taken at CTRA Invitational Launch,
Cobleskill, NY  9/8/01


I increased the picture taking speed to every 2 seconds; taped over the auto-focus window on the camera and used 400 speed film. Got better results this time. Launched with an H238-S, about 1200'.

T+28 seconds, shows everyone. Sure wish this was in focus!

T+50 seconds, seconds before touch down in field a couple hundred feet from the pad. If you look closely, the nearest person to the rocket (wearing black pants and a white shirt) video taping is ME!
