It's officially TEN days before the path of totality reaches us (or me)! I am fortunate enough to reside in Casper, Wyoming where the totality will occur for 2 minutes and 26 seconds which is vital! I've never shot a time lapse so I am a complete amateur at this point. I was going through the settings for my Hero5 and was curious if any pros would weigh in the best settings to capture this spectacle.
- Should I use just 'time lapse photo' or 'night lapse photo' for the event? Of course, I would like to capture both the sun and the total eclipse in one go.
- If you prefer time lapse photo, what settings would you use? Interval 0.5, 1, 2, or 5? Protune settings? WDR OR Raw format?
- Conversely, if you think night lapse photo is best... Shutter auto, 30, 20, 15, 10, 5, 2? Interval auto, 4s, 10s, 30s, 60m? FOV choice? Protune settings? Raw format?
It is a lot to ask, I know. I would greatly appreciate your feedback!

I will be in 92% totality in Denver, Colorado. I have a tripod and an office in LoHi where I can go up to the roof for an East/South East view of the city skyline. Does anyone have setting reccomendtions for a 92% totality location?
