The "jewel" of the KSC rocket garden has to be this Saturn IB rocket. But other than taking long shots from across the area of this rocket, it is hard to get a good image of it without other exhibits in front of it. So I tried using my 10mm fisheye lens. Well, it's different. This is a spare Saturn Rocket numbered SA-209 - it is the 9th Saturn IB rocket built and became a museum piece after the last of the Apollo flights (the 3 manned Skylab Saturn IB flights and the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project that also used a Saturn IB rocket). This image was taken at f/11 with an exposure of 1/160 seconds, ISO 100.
