    Cost about $20 for the pipes, some wires, and 72 pixels...

    Only issue is how I've got the channels set up I think.

    I'm still having issues working out lsp, so going with hls, which I'm loving.

    Idea to wire a star like this without the cut at 18. Wire the second arm 10,12,14,16,18,17,15,13,11,27,25,23,21,19,20,22,24,26,etc. Your setup in your software is still a bear as your going through now anyway. Just a thought to save voltage drop and connections.

    Sadly it's all wired up.

    I've created a grid so I can keep track of it though, really happy with how it works.

    I had to make a similar grid for my megatree. With a nice grid like that it really doesn't matter the order they are wired. You care see the effects on your grid and follow the numbers. I'm sure it'll be a great hit in your show. Please post the video next year.

    Death Star v2.

    I love my Death Star, but already noticing the arms are sagging, so without further ado, put on your best Darth Vader voice...

    I present to you.. The making of the DS2.
