I tried to convey experiencing the in today's video. I didn't do it for the YouTube algorithm, I did it because it's something I love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUWQPIzzmJc

@lukechannings I guess what Destin said is true—"make the videos you love" :)

Though it doesn't get as many views on YouTube! But if I can make it happen without going poor, I'll do more!

@joel Heh, I usually spend more time thinking about how it will perform, working on thumbnails/titles, etc., since making videos wouldn't be sustainable otherwise.

But for this video I mostly wanted to relay my experience, and I know it's not going to do well (it's a '9 of 10' right now), but that's not what's important :)

It'd be really neat if Raspberry Pi 5 supported UEFI out of the box. But this is a pretty nice alternative: https://github.com/worproject/rpi5-uefi (h/t to leepspvideo on YouTube for showing it running!)

@JetForMe ha! It would be next level hackery

I will post a full video on the soon, but for now, here's a shot of the end of totality—bailey's beads and the diamond ring (along with some bonus giant prominences! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K0DGVemnJQ

I need a home NAS for archiving 4k videos. No real performance required. Just a place to dump the SD cards. Thoughts on what to look at?

geerlingguy,
@geerlingguy@mastodon.social avatar

@radarcornflakes @aconaway how much storage space required? I'd get a low-end NAS 2 or 4-bay depending on space, 2.5 Gbps is fine, even if you only have 1 Gbps now. I like ASUSTOR's Drivestor for the price. Terramaster not bad too.

@aconaway sure thing!

Totality was incredible! Here's my composite (and after a bunch of people have asked, I have a digital copy for personal use for sale here: https://redshirtjeff.com/listing/total-solar-eclipse-2024-image (downloadable image is slightly tweaked for more pleasing layout!)

@Dhmspector yes! And some neat prominences

@ironicbadger I did get 1 minute of practice in 2017 lol :D

@luisfcorreia Blissfully few cirrus clouds, they stayed a bit south of us!

@geerlingguy@mastodon.social avatar

@whargrove Amazing whether or not you capture it—half the people with me got good pictures, the other had some trouble (focus, exposure, whatever) but all decided to just take in the moment.

Look who I found, @smartereveryday! Please cooperate and give us the nice clear skies we have right now later today 🤞

@slembcke we weee off 55 at Drury Inn in Fruitland; you near there?

geerlingguy,
@geerlingguy@mastodon.social avatar

@slembcke we stayed down in Jackson for the night; I remember the stories about traffic from 2017, so we decided to stay. Hopefully today's traffic will be normal!

We've arrived at our southern MO destination for — hopefully we'll have over 4 min of totality! Assuming clouds cooperate...

geerlingguy,
@geerlingguy@mastodon.social avatar

@hmoffatt every second counts! Especially if a cloud gets in the way!

@iaintshootinmis not too far away!

@Affekt Oh wow! Hope the clouds dissipate for you!

@foobarsoft Yes, we got lucky and had unobstructed view from our backyard in south St. Louis!

@geerlingguy@mastodon.social avatar

Prepping for the eclipse—going to head out tomorrow and I want to make sure all my equipment's ready to go, batteries charged, etc. Focus isn't perfect yet, that's always the hardest thing to nail, even with external monitor!

@geerlingguy@mastodon.social avatar

@yetzt I've considered adding a lux meter, thermometer, and other stuff too but wrangling the four kids means I'm keeping it down to what I can mount up on one tripod!
