Nope, galaxy s10+ just really screwy lighting. Phone didn't know if it wanted to go into low light or not. Lol

That's why I like the "pro" mode. Can adjust your settings closer.

Its amazing how massive everything is going to be compared to The Racer. The scale and height of Orion is going to be quite the contrast to Racer!

I think they just put up another brake run piece

They did, but did they install another support?  I don't see one..

Looks like they are installing another support, but that glare makes it hard to tell for sure

You are correct, it looks lower, so possible the up hill on the brake run

Hard to see on mobile, but on my tv, it looks like Zeus has some straps connected to the drop back bone

I don't believe so.  I circled his hook in your photo, so he's working on whatever is directly below it.

You can now (barely) see they actually did put up another support for the break run. It’s hiding in a shadow right now but starting to be more visible. No idea how we missed this getting put up!

Oh believe me I get it, I just feel like it needed to be said. Not all of us have free time all day and it's hard to see the "real" updates. How else could it have been addressed? Just seems like this forum is filled with meaningless posts.

You want a quick update....look at the webcam. Get over it. We are on here to discuss the construction of Orion. So the updates are about the crane because that is all that was being done from what we can see from the webcam. It'll be ok I promise.

Wow! You can see it all the way from there? Amazing! I have rehearsal tonight at School of Rock in Mason and I go right by KI on the way there so I'll might snap a few shots of Zeus on my way there!

Those things have to be small. I wonder why they are using such a massive crane  to move small things. lol

Zeus is bringing parts of the next crane.  Rumor has it we should expect 3 large cranes on site.  The next one will be bigger than Zeus.  This is a post from a person that works for Sterett Crane and on site.

Checking for proper operation with lighter objects maybe? Or someone needs something to do so "housekeeping time"

I have been watching and I actually think its not moving anything lol  I see the crane "ball / hook" go down and not pick anything up and move back over.
