This is the video recorded by the camera with the 1000nm infrared filter and a 7.2mm lens. The comparison video was shot with a camera placed next to it in the capsule. That camera had a 5.4mm lens. The infrared camera has a tighter shot than the comparison camera.

The Launch took place in Santa Nella, Ca. on 10 Nov. 2018 at 6:55am. Landed in mountains Northeast of Idria, Ca.

There were fires burning in California at the time of the launch and all of central California was covered in thick smoke. The smoke obstructed the view of the cameras. I will redo this experiment and use two cameras with lenses that have the same focal length. Both cameras will have infrared filters, one with a 950nm, and the other with a 1000nm. I might install a third camera without filter for a comparison shot.
