If you had the opportunity to shoot Area 51, what lens body combination(s) would you take?

My contribution to the “What lens would you choose?” question.

If you could get, "on-site"..they wouldn't let you have a camera.
If you could get to a mountain to shoot it from a distance, something like 5000mm. But, I think the govt increased the land they own around it...to prevent folks from camping out and taking pics.

The lens you want exists, but you have to get into orbit to take a look at it.

You'll need a lens to work with your infrared camera. Everyone knows you can't see extraterrestrials in visible light.

800mm + doubler + adapter mount with X.X factor + Micro 4/3rds camera. Also as in a Nikon system - 1000mm +TC-201 + FT-1 + V1 = 5,400mm I think. Will need a steady tripod or stable rock. Good Luck.

I remember when Google Earth first came out and captured it, and then they de-classified A51.

Google Maps/Earth didn't really photograph it. Rather, they leased/purchased the satellite photos from a non-US Gov't agency that had photographed the location (I heard it was from the Russians, but I can't find the source anymore).

As to de-classified, the gov't has only acknowledged that something exists in that vicinity and nothing more.

That's correct, Sovinformsputnik, although there are images from the late '60s taken by USGS/NASA as well.

More recent IKONOS images are available at several sites, including the Federation of American Scientists' site:
