Hello Space,
   Since it looks like the new
camera<http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00466PH2K/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=blakebarnet-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00466PH2K>I
purchased won't be ready[hacked] in time for our next flight we have
decided to re-attempt the configuration that failed on our last flight (due
to the payload bouncing violently against the ground during takeoff).
I have setup the A700
<http://www.flickr.com/cameras/canon/powershot_a700/>with a 720nm
near-IR filter<http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MCWWL6/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=blakebarnet-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000MCWWL6>and
a .35x
magnifier<http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0027U6OXI/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=blakebarnet-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0027U6OXI>(semi-fisheye)
in hopes to get near-IR
semi-fisheye<http://www.douglasfarmerphotography.com/2010/07/english-bay-ir-fish-eye-jul-02-2010.html>
.
I also have a .20x magnifier (even fishier fish-eye), but some have
expressed concerns about distortion caused by the fisheye, so that's why I
have set it up with the .35x.

   I will not be able to attend the meeting tonight, but I will be by the
space to drop off the camera, hopefully in the next hour.
