Would be nice if someone made a motion-stabilised version of the amazing, zoomed-in booster separation footage.

That's pretty sweet, thank you. Those shots will only get better in the future, looking forward to it.

Now that is the good stuff above  ;D

Anyone know what they used to shoot that video?  It is just so clear!  That is the most amazing image stabilization I have ever seen....so smooth.

For anyone wondering, this appears to be somewhere around 3x slow motion video.

Edit: could be closer to 2.5x slower than real time based on the press kit timeline, but not 2x.

I sped it up 2x and it seemed fairly close.

Good, yes
What’s astounding is that we had an equally good view of fairing release “with the unaided eye” from eastern south Florida
In our favor was the reduced distance and the better angles, the second stage and the fairings being viewed broadside and near the zenith. It was breathtaking to really see the fairing halves’ shapes as they peeled away from the second stage.
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?
