Re: Anyone recording the total eclipse on their solar array?

Mon Aug 21, 2017 12:43 pm

i'm no graphic artist but I do have a copy of publisher, so I brought into two images, one of this morning and one of Saturday and overlayed them to see what today might have been without the moon passing in between the sun and the array.

here is what i managed to put together. Not perfect. but for me, it's as good as i know how to do. you can see a little bit of blurring etc. like I said.. I'm not a graphic person.

Apologies about the 1st uploaded video. I used JING to record but the format is in SWF which YT doesn't like so I used a online converter.. bad idea.. it really messed it up. I found another program to record in MP4 and it looks much better.

Thanks for that awesome image, Duncan! OTOH, I think your video should have a seizure alert on it! ;)

Yeah, sorry about that. I trusted something and I shouldn't and it was a terrible result. Anyway, I found a much better solution and the video should be fine now.

Thanks for this thread, guys. I really enjoyed the pics and video!

We only got to 74% here. It was neat to watch through the filtered glasses. I tried taking a picture, but it didn't come out at all. I also checked my array and it didn't seem to make an appreciable dent in production.

Here's my modest contribution. Local maximum was about 10:15 a.m.

Cheers, Wayne

Welcome, iceisfun! Thanks for posting your eclipse image!

Unfortunately, I cannot view this image. In fact, I cannot load any pages from your website. I've tried both from my ISP and my cellular provider and I cannot load anything from there.

BTW, can you provide your public webpage for your solar array so that I can track it on my MTBF spreadsheet?

I have my own app that scrapes all the per inverter stats from envoy and puts them into a database and draw my own charts using d3js

I'm also doing another install with ~42 IQ6+ inverters
