Network Video Movies!

So I continued to play around with the Axis network video camera I was graciously loaned, and got it set up so it automatically uploads HD-sized video stills to my FTP site, starting at 5:00 am and ending at 9:00 pm. In fact, it should just be finishing up right now. However, from about 7:15 on, the images were basically black, because we’re not even at the equinox yet and that kind of day duration won’t be prevalent until the solstice. But it works! Awesomesauce! To celebrate, I whipped up a quick time-lapse video of my neighbor’s roof and the sky:

Since I’m interested in the sky colors, I did a crop of the sky quadrant and averaged out the values to create this time-lapse:

And just because I was feeling silly, I cropped out the right-hand roofline and averaged out the values to create a final time-lapse:

I just have to figure out where to mount the camera and I can start a six-month collection regimen of a new skygrid! Woo-hoo!
