Near infra red camera payload complete

I have now completed the payload rack for the twin cameras. Everything is now in place including cameras, rack, shutter release, and near infra red filters.

The rack and twin cameras weight 1114g. I need to test the complete set up weight before launch.

the rack is made up of a metal twin tripod base plate with sliding screws into the cameras. The top is light pressed steel. The plates are linked by threaded steel rods cut to length.

I am now ready for a test launch but as it is the height of winter, I am in no rush. I plan a HAB in late January  – February so may try the complete set then.
