We recently purchased a ready
to fly Astrocam. In case you are unfamiliar with the Astrocam, it is capable
of taking pictures from a camera that is mounted in the nose cone. When
the ejection charge fires a string releases the shutter and a picture is
taken. Note: The Astrocam takes pictures that need to be reversed (i.e.
viewed in a mirror) in order to see them correctly. I did not reverse or
touch-up my pictures. What you are seeing is as close
to the actual photographs as I can make them.

Beach. I finally got a good
picture of the ocean. We cannot see the ocean

cover it up completely. This picture

1. These pictures were taken in Shreveport, Louisiana. This
one was taken on a
C6-7. The rocket was still going up
when the nose cone decided to eject and
it took a picture of the clouds.

and houses surrounding the field where
we launch model rockets.
