Ok.
I'm liking the 500-600 foot altitude range.
Still need to figure out where the 3 anchor points will be, and how long
our kite-string will be.
 
Then, how the camera/payload will hang from the balloon.

	Question:
	
	What's the field of view of a camera? How many degrees in the
viewing
	angle?
	
	So... Assuming we want to capture medieval boffers, food tent,
and a few
	surrounding fans...
	
	How high do we want the camera to be?
	
	
	Answer:  (remember that it's been a long time since I took
trigonometry)
	
	If you want to capture 200 yards on the ground, with our current
camera it has to be 576 feet up.
	
	If you want to capture 100 yards on the ground, with our current
camera it has to be ..... 287 feet up.
	
	
	
	John
