Default Night time space shuttle launch

I just rolled in from the Cape and have been up for 25 hours + so I am not sure how this looks with real sleepy eyes.

Got only a few because she entered low level clouds soon after clearing the pad so we were not able to track her down range like I had hoped.

Exif : 1/640, f/6.3, ISO 200, EF500 @ 1.4x

Edit: I have since adjusted the white balance in this image towards the cooler side even though at this point of the launch this color temp. is probably more accurate.

Now that's a photo to be proud of. Did you need to use any noise program?
