The unit Glen has referenced is Holman's basic unit which requires you to replace the AA batteries every now and then, they work quite well, I'm just ready to replace the similar unit which was close to 7 years old and only suffered from UV degradation of the plastic.
I am thinking, that since it would be mounted on my observatory, wiring a DC plug pack to it would be pretty easy.
