Some calculations:
        Fireworks typically to 400 to 500 feet high.  (Some go as high as 3,000 feet but not likely here)
        1/3 of a mile is 1760 feet.  The angle is 16 degrees.

        On a full frame camera the 24-70 mm zoom would be about right (vertical view 51 - 19 degrees)
        APS-C equivalent is about 15 - 44 mm

Don't forget extra batteries, extra memory cards, a functioning remote shutter release, tripod, and how to focus using live view.

Thanks . . . Guy
