How do Photographers Remotely Capture the Space Shuttle?

With the historic last launch of the space shuttle Endeavor, I got to wondering how the photographers remotely trigger their cameras to photograph the launch.  Since the public has to be 3 miles away from the launch site, it would be WAY too far for a Pocketwizard.

Fortunately, BorrowLenses.com posted a link on their facebook page that answered my question.  Just thought I’d share the video with the rest of you.  It’s quite interesting.

    Having done a few of these, also from the swamp, he leaves out one key ingredient. Just using a mike trigger might not work because of the security helicopters that can circle. You need a timer to turn on the mike trigger.

    You might also go back to pick up your gear to see an alligator snuggling up to your tripod.

    We appreciate you making the sincere attempt to explain this. Personally i think very sturdy about it and wish to be told more. Whether its OK, as you reach more thorough knowledge, could you mind including more posts similar to this one with more information? It might be extremely helpful and great for me and my colleagues.
