I tried posting these, the night of the launch, but OSO, was timing out/ not loading for me So I am trying again, a week later, as I only arrived home Saturday. Here is a 4 image sequence. More images to come, after I start editing/ posting KW images.

Setup: 1DMKIIN + 300/2.8 IS + 1.4x TC +2x TC = 840mm Focal Length, F/8, ISO 800, Exposure Comp +.07, Tripod + Ball Head. Location: East Causeway, on the west end, about 6 miles south of launch pad 39A.

0MPH to 17,000MPH in 8.5 Minutes.

Bummer,
I can't see the pics, and which causeway were you on, the NASA CW?
Thanks,
Dean

Dean,

I'm not sure, why you cannot see the photos. Here is a direct link to my gallery: http://www.eatonphotos.com/p274128242

I was on the NASA East Side Causeway, the one everybody, says to try & get to, if possible.

The firewall here @ Lockheed Martin blocks them, along with your website. Oh well, I'll try to check them out @ home. Here's a couple of Shuttle shots I took back in 2006 I think. We were out in the boats to watch it, and my youngest girl was driving the scuba scooter around the boat.
thanks,
Dean
