The K10D Rises Again (To 98,514ft)

You'll remember that engineers at Oklahoma State University sent a Pentax K10D up into the stratosphere (Pentax K10D at 10400FT). Now Dr. Andrew Arena Jr. has sent the camera back up to 98,514ft, and this time with a wide angle Pentax lens, the DA 10-17 Fish Eye.

This is one of the shots taken from the high altitude:

For more great images, visit the Flickr set (Astro 12) or read about it (OkState). Again, excellent job!
