SpaceX Freedom Star Setup to Track Dragon During Launch

Once used to recover Solid Rocket Boosters from the Space Shuttle, The Freedom Star has been setup with one of the tracking cameras once used for the Space Shuttle. Out at sea they will track the separation of Dragon and solar array deployment using highly tuned optics on a tracking mount to dampen out motion from over 200 miles away.
