These are the extra photos I took between arriving at the EVLA and going to the ceremony. Many of those taken in the control room and early in the correlator room were taken as part of my effort to determine the camera settings to use for the group shots (I have a fairly new camera). The targets were not chosen carefully, to say the least. I also have a couple of videos but those are very bulky so I have not loaded them yet.
Some of the photos show the rather interesting distortions you can
get near the edges of a very wide lens. My 12-24mm zoom covers more
than 90 deg at the widest setting, so the issues of mapping a
spherical view onto a 2D image, that also cause problems for
astronomy, are an issue. This lens tries to keep straight lines
straight which is good for architecture, but that leads to "fat"
people near the edges. I did some processing to reduce the effect for
the selected group shots on the main page (at the cost of straight
lines), but not for those here. You can also see the shadowing of the
pop-up flash by the lens. If I had known I was going to be taking
such shots, I would have brought my separate flash that sticks up much
