NP-101, 1.4x teleconverter, with a Canon 30D. Hand tracked using a home made alt/az mount.
Our location (our backyard) is about 120 miles north of the "Cape". A fabulous show! The shuttle and the separated SRBs were clearly seen and followed with the naked eye until they "hit" the tree line. The kids and I could not believe the view!
