Could one assume also a somewhat low power booster engine to get a fairly low staging altitude?

I would be very surprised if that was not an A8-0 in the booster. A B6-0, B8-0, or B14-0 would stage higher.

What I meant was, how did you make the photo at that angle? I looks like the camera was almost right beside the model at staging. Was it shot from the ground—or was it shot telephoto from a high place like a building or scaffold? PLEASE reveal!

Hi Jeff;

If I recall, Chris was seated in LCO tent, and was using a long lens. Forgive me but I don't recall the focal length. So he was shooting at angle for sure.

Those shots are easy. My son's gap staged Aerobee Hi with a Kodak 110 pocket camera.
Ok, a Nikon DSLR.
