Default One really cool thing about living in Florida (Shuttle)

I got these pics of the shuttle going up. I would have took the boat out and got better ones but our son has a cold.

Very exciting!

My mother lived in Deltona and I was visiting her once when the shuttle went up, it was really neat to see from her house, I cant imagine how exciting it would be to be closer.

Very cool... I have seen a launch from very very far away but would love to get out to one with my 50-500mm lens... At least before they retire it.

Yea, it pretty much goes up in my back yard. If i take the boat for a 5 minute ride i can be right there. Its really cool how the windows shake. Kyle we need to talk lenses sometime
I just bought a Cannon Digital Rebel XT and have no idea about lenses. Id like a good Macro and a good zoom one.

Good macro= Canon 100mm Macro.

For long Zoom I have been very impressed with my Sigma 50-500 DG, its a big lens and not cheap but well worth the money for far away shots. It keeps up with the Canon 100-400mm but is about $400 less.

Most of these are with the 50-500mm:

I think I was on a school trip when we saw the shuttle go up, but we were not that close.

Very nice. For us old farts who lived during the era of the Saturn V rockets literally watching a skyscraper oh so slowly push its way into the sky, the shuttle is a souped dragster in terms of its assent.

<<<prays that this crew makes it home safe....

Paul,

I think the reason why a Brit is on board is to ensure that at least two languages are spoken on the shuttle mission :wink:
