Default Need good Picture of Saturn 1 SA7 Take Off

I was trying to find a good picture of the Saturn 1 SA 7 launch that Estes used on their 1967 catalog, I found the picture but it's poor quality. I have some of this rocket clearing the tower, just wanted a good one that Estes used.

Any help are a good link would be great

Thank you!

I attached my poor ones and the1967 Estes catalog for reference

Don't know if the specific image you are looking for is here, but this a link to the 'Early Apollo' section of the Apollo Image Archive.

Even if the specific photo you are looking for is not here, you may enjoy looking through the broader archive of all the Apollo missions. It is quite extensive.

Here's the specific link. You'll need to scroll down a ways to get to the SA-7 photos.

Link: http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html



Good luck!

Earl

Estes didn't doctor the image to remove the pole and tower. The catalog pic is a slightly different angle from Wolf's. The catalog pic is the same image as the last one you attached in the original post. Wolf's pic is the same as the middle pic.

The camera angle is only different by a few degrees. The catalog shot is more or less perpendicular to the pad while Wolf's pic is maybe 10 degrees to the right. The different angle is enough to line the light pole up with the Saturn and line the tower up close enough that it couldn't be cropped out.
