    I just heard from a friend who is a professional photographer on  
    Maui.  He was up at Haleakala for the intercept and thinks he managed  
    to get pictures of the debris field and possible vapor trail left by  
    the vaporizing hydrazine.
    550mm William Optics 80mm fluorite doublet w/ 1.4X multiplier, tripod  
    mounted, Nikon D200 ISO 100
    Debris field image was a 1/500" exposure.
    Vapor trail was 2" exposure.
    I'm not sure about the vapor trail image but I can't imagine what  
    else all those dots are in a sunlit blue sky with such a short exposure.
    He could not put the full size images on the web site but will email  
    them to interested persons.
    What do y'all think?
