Six Miles High

Canon 10D
Meade 2000mm f10 Schmidt Cassegrain
1/2000s f10 iso400

I like this shot for the technical difficulty. This Delta jet is barely visible to the naked eye at this altitude. If it were not for the contrail one would not even know it was there. In my part of the country you can only get shots like this just after frontal passage when you have an absolutely clear blue sky. Oh yes---I am an ex Army pilot and certified flight instructor so I like air planes. Thatís probably another reason I like this shot.

other sizes: small medium large
