Near Space Photography and High Altitude Ballooning

In recent times there has been great interest to photograph the realm known as near space. The realm of near space starts at about 23km (75000 feet).

The smallest size meteorological balloon recommened for near space photography is our 350 gm balloon, type CPR-350(X). The largest size we manufacture for this application is a 2000gm balloon, type CPR-2000. Please send us information regarding the payload you would like to launch as well as the desired altitude, so we may recommend the appropriate size for your project. We also provide parachutes for returning the payload back to earth.

For tethered ballooning photography the smallest size recommended is our 150 gm balloon which is available in red colour for better visibility.

There are various resources available on the internet to find more information regarding high altitude ballooning and near space photography using weather balloons. Be sure to check your local regulations prior to launching balloons.
