I decided to use a fish-eye to see if I could capture the plume. I used an aperture of f22 because I set the shutter to 3 minutes and I didn’t want to over-expose the photo. If I use this lens for the next launch, I’ll use f11 or so, if there’s no moon.
I had to crank up the exposure and contrast to make the arc visible, you can barely see it in the middle of the photo. Monochrome conversion also helped.
Another night launch is scheduled for 15-December just before 11PM and I’m hoping for good weather. My contribution to The weekend in Black and White 22-November-2013
