Launched on May 2, 2010, near Calico, CA, the Pacific Star I was the first in a series of high altitude photography experiments I am conducting.
The payload travelled 96.4 miles and attained a height of 33km.
In attendance on the mission: Colin Rich (myself), James "Jimmy" Smith, and William Ahmanson.
The launch and recovery was a complete success save for condensation buildup on the UV protector rendering the photographs to appear very diffused.
I am planning another launch next week.
