Over the years, I've data-mined some (IMHO) pretty cool vidcaps from my HPR onboard camcorders. The events in these vidcaps either happen so quickly, and/or are so high up that they normally go unnoticed. I thought I'd periodically share some of these pics with the community.

This vidcap was from my 2016 Saturn V/ Skylab launch. The rocket is about 6 feet tall and 6" in diameter. One of three camcorders on the rocket captured this fleeting view from the fin section after the drogue deployed.

Wow. In 2098 I would think we would be launching from Mars...disappointed.

I kid, I kid. That is a cool shot.

I think the date stamp is hilarious too. Was always spooked as to trying to set the date/time on that keychain camcorder, so I never tried.

I've been able to set mine but it's pretty much hit or miss. I never know what date will show up.

Very nice shot.

I've really become a fan of having cameras on rockets. I think my next flight will have four. I've captured a few things that I never would have believed could happen and would never have figured out without the video. And every now and then, you get a shot like yours!

Great photos, video, and rocket! I don't often see the Skylab rocket built/flown.

Extremely poor choice of powerpoint slide I must say. Gave me flashbacks of Measurements and Instrumentation class........
