[ Medium Large ]
1,994 of 2,192
My remote camera sits on the pad less than 24 hrs before launch of "Endeavour" on her last mission (STS-134). Minolta X-700 + 50mm lens attached to a sound trigger. Tripod is anchored by 3 bungee chords (orange) to 9 inch stakes driven into the ground. Three 30 lb bags of sand have been placed at each leg. The whole setup is wrapped in a garbage bag except for lens opening. Film = Fuji Velvia 50.
