Apollo 8 launch in HD 60fps

Apollo 8 launch highlights, from liftoff to orbit, from HD sources

Launched on December 21, 1968, Apollo 8 was the first crewed spacecraft to orbit the Moon. 

Some of the original footage was taken by engineering cameras at high frame rates and normally is shown in slow motion.
Here it's presented in real speed, but taking advantage of 60 fps video for smother motion. 

On the latter part of the ascent, images from Apollo 4 and 6 are used to illustrate stage separation, tower jettison and out the window views. These are also presented at approximate real speed.
