AstroCam

     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.

 LOUISIANA PICTURES
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.
2. This is a picture of some of the trees and houses surrounding the field where
    we launch model rockets.
3. Here is a better picture of some of the houses that surround the field. The
    blue in the picture is a swimming pool in someone's back yard.
