How do I do that?  For the eclipse I simply can't wait the time needed to download them to the PC.

Why not skip sgp? Just use a remote trigger. You could bracket your shots as well, which I think would be essential for this.

And, while using your remote trigger, remember that if you go to fast, you will run into buffering. Of course, you should discover that during an early practice run------of which you should have many over the next month.

Why not skip SGP and other paraphernalia and just use the built in intervalometer? I tried a test run during the last few days and spaced out taking 1/2000 sec images (with Baader solar filter) and 5 min between shots and the test was successful.

 

Of course, that will not work for totality and you may then want to set the intervalometer to taking shots every 5 seconds which will also allow enough time to read to the internal memory card. Unless of course, you were asking a different or more sophisticated question that went over my head :-)  .... Anil
