The Delphinus Team
The photo-equipment of Robert Haas and Casper ter Kuile consists of  twenty
Canon T-70 + 1.8/50 mm optics at each station. More technical information
regarding the camera setups can be found at
"http://delpsurf.www.cistron.nl/haas_array.html" and
"http://home.wanadoo.nl/dms/photo/crtk_array.html".  We will be
photographing from 0 to 6 UT and use exposure times of 10 minutes at
maximum. In case skyconditions are worse we will start photographing at 2
UT and shorten the exposuretime to 7 minutes. Kodak Tri-X is used and
developed to about 800 ASA. The 1.8 lenses will be stopped down to 2.8. The
array's of Canon T-70's are fully automated through the use of the Canon
Command Back 70.  A powergenerator will provide energy for the rotating
shutter and the heating of the lenses and camera's.

The video-equipment of Carl Johannink and Casper ter Kuile consists of a
Canon 1.2/50 mm aspherical objective followed by the AEG XX1400 Image
Intensifier and a Panasonic digital camcorder NV-DA1. Romke Schievink at
the second station has a similar video image intensifier setup. To be able
to point these two systems at the correct aimingpoint 100 km high in the
sky the Q-richt program of Marc de Lignie is used at the laptop.
