Highest Altitude for Texas and Cornell

L. Paul Verhage KD4STH
 

My tracker, KD4STH-2 reached 99,705 feet and flew with either the Texas Team or Cornell. Can both of you email your tracker's highest reported altitude? I wonder if you got later packets at a higher altitude. 

I'm attaching a few near infrared pictures my payload with MOHAB took. Healthy chlorophyll appears brighter than less healthy. So well watered plants look brighter.

Paul,

Your tracker recorded the highest altitude on the flight, at almost 400 feet above any of mine.  So, yours stands as apogee for the Cornell flight at 99,705.

Rats. I was hoping to make over 100,000 feet officially. Oh well, that's the breaks (or the burst).

Thanks

Still pics are great. Videos of a camera swinging or rotating make me sick to my stomach. Great stuff!!
