Fantastic shots! Manual lenses make so much sense in these conditions.
Am I right guessing #3 was some LEDs shining into a lens filter?

I'd guess a simple diffraction grating. Giving a spectrum from the exhaust flame.
I'm not sure any useful spectral information can be extracted from the shot, the light source is too wide for fine detail to show in the spectra.

Thank you! Mike for taking time for posting here! Whoo Turtle

PS the 3rd photo would make a great post in the thread "Bring forth the wonder that is flare".

I've very much enjoyed your rocket launch shots before Mike,
and these are great too.

Must be quite a thrill, being so close during launch. Shocked

You'd think I could keep my 35s straight... 2nd shot was a Nikkor, not a Takumar.

I'm more impressed with the use of a 28 and a 24, making it very obvious just how close
to the action your camera was. Exclamation

Impressive clarity and crispiness from all the lenses. Congratulations!
