First Run of New Skygrid Data

I started doing another Skygrid on the 13th, setting a camera to point up at the sky from one of the bedroom windows and having it take a picture every 8 minutes. The camera is set fully manual, f/8.0 at 1/400 sec, 200 ISO, which is pretty close to the “Sunny f/16” rule for bright clear days. White balance is set for sun. Basically, I’m trying to get a basic snapshot of the color and brightness of the sky throughout the day. I hope to run this for at least 54 days, so I can get a HD-proportioned grid of 96 snapshots by 54 days. Here’s the first 12, with 6:00 am at the top, 7:00pm at the bottom, and 13 Jul to the left:
