Helicopter and Photographer

These photographs were taken by Richard Wainscoat in a Hughes 500 helicopter. The rear door of the helicopter was removed. The photographs were taken using a Mamiya 645 Pro camera mounted on a gyroscopic stabilizer, and with a Nikon N90S camera with telephoto zoom lens. Special thanks are due to the pilot, Marty Williams, for his excellent flying. This photo was taken by Andy Perala of the W.M. Keck Observatory, who provided a great deal of help in organizing this photo shoot..
