The photos and video and further data analysis from the balloon launch are now available & you can see these below – see other posts regarding this near-space balloon launch mission – the closest an amateur astronomer can get to doing what NASA and ESA do with their space missions. The photos in the previous posts were taken off LED screen on the back of the camera – losts of dust bunnies! These better quality images give a far better sense of the incredible experience of launching one of these balloons – RAG definitely must do this!
