I rolled the dice and did it in just under 12 hours, arriving in Orlando at 7:30 pm and leaving at 7:00 am

it was so bright and loud .

    Wow! What a fantastic opportunity to see the launch. Second and third shots for the win.

    I'm glad for you that they didn't scrub this mission ( as happened several times earlier ), particularly after the effort you made to get there. Over the years, I've caught 3 Saturn Five launches and 2 space shuttle launches.....one being the disastrous 1986 Challenger launch that exploded right after lift-off and killed all the folks on board. I wanted to catch this Artemis launch but, because of the prior scrubbings, I didn't make the effort.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Gatto....

    Excellent images and what an opportunity!

    Love shot #4...IMHO, maybe with some slight shadow adjustment or post-processing with a neutral density filter in the top half of the image.

    Thank you for posting these.
