Very nice, will have to look into this.

Are you using the standard lens or a "fisheye" version?

That Alaskan scenery is just something else!

Fred, how did you mount the camera to the strut? Could you maybe post a picture of the installation? I experimented with a GoPro on the wing strut for videos, too, but get too much vibration, resulting in a "wobbling" picture. Looking for a quick, dependable type of attachment that lets me sleep well – BEFORE the flight :wink: – knowing the camera simply cannot fall off.

Very nice, Fred!

N1132H's shadow in the trees looks neat. :D
