Title: Record high altitude amateure photography
Post by: Art on September 16, 2012, 04:48:51 AM

A veteran balloon photographer has set a world record altitude for amateur aerial photography
(39.5 Km) using a Canon camera running a custom script.

This is produced from a three piece panorama:

Might as well shut up shop, or leave the forum open as a general social group or something.
Cheers, Art.

Welcome. We get a lot of these sorts of posts. What you are looking downing at is the lit portion of a disc.

You can far better see the edge of the sunlit portion or the boundary between day and night. Its very pretty.
