    Dont you just love it when a plan comes together. Put up my first of 3 pixel mega trees. Went up without me falling off the ladder. Wired it up and every pixel lit up the first try. :)

    Looks good, I like the bulb covers.

    Would be good to see a video at night time.

    Matt, yes I did say 3 mega trees. There is another one identical to this one and then a 12 strip ray tree in the center.


    The height of this tree is 13 feet, I guess that would be about 4 meters. If I cant reach it from a step ladder, its to tall for me.


    I will fire up nutcracker in the next few days and try and get a video.


    I was just so happy last night when I hooked it up to the card, then hooked up my power injection and every pixel came on. That was a lot of different connections and to get everyone of them correct and connected surprised me. I have a feeling tree number 2 will not go as well.

    That is gorgeous.
    All the pixels a aligned perfectly and perfect rows.
    I like your star and love the use of what I assume are C9 covers.
    Excellent work. You should be very proud of it.
