4-minute exposure from 10 seconds prior to ignition - first stage cut-off/separation and second stage start-up are recorded by gap just beyond the peak of the arc launch path

Wow - awesome record of this event.:-)

How did you plan/estimate that the loop of the trajectory would fit in the frame so nicely?

Cheers

Dennis

Dennis, I have been to a number of SpaceX and ULA launches in the last 2 years, so I had a very good idea of the direction the rocket would go. The 8mm lens afforded full coverage of the sky in that direction, and I cropped to center more precisely.

Thank you. I am honored to receive your compliment. I was fortunate to have a great angle from the bank of the Indian River in Titusville, a minimally clouded sky, and a pre-dawn launch time that was just right. The umbrella provided by the small layer of clouds right over the cape also contributed to the catch. This was my second attempt at this kind of shot, the first of which stopped prematurely when I bumped the shutter button on my remote in the excitement of the moment at the previous manned launch. :-)

What were the lights in the centre under the cloud just above the horizon?

Pagman, those lights are Pad 39B designated for NASA SLS launches. The Vertical Assembly Building used for Saturn V will be assembly site for SLS with the long rollout to 39B a la the Apollo moon missions. The core stage for the first SLS launch arrived just yesterday by barge from Mississippi again like Saturn V.
