All of Jay's content and our other guys there in L2, but we use highlights for the rest of you and in articles.

Here's one example. 4K video all the way up and all the way down. Best non-official video out there.

Falcon 9 Launch with SAOCOM 1A and landing - SONIC BOOM - 2018-10-07

Justin Foley
Published on Oct 8, 2018

The launch of SAOCOM 1A for Argentina on board a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. This was also SpaceX's first attempt at landing the booster at Vandenberg. The video is a combination of footage shot by Sony A6000 with 210mm lens and Sony A7sII shot through a 1500mm Celestron 6" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. Tracking was guided manually via joystick control. Landing and sonic boom occur at approximately 7:58.

Here's my footage:

I learned a lot from my first time out.  Onto the top of my list -- check for freedom of motion so I don't have to pull the camera off the stand and hold the thing by hand during launch!  My mount can move to vertical, but apparently not when my audio recorder is attached to my tripod ;/  I also need to have my ND filters ready -- it was far brighter than I had expected.

Got to remember you are filming a 31 gigawatt candle flame, when watching a Falcon9 launch.
(390 million candles, more or less)
