Good luck Jeremy it looks like it'll work well. I've put this on hold because it's a luxury and not a necessity for my setup. Therefore it sits at the bottom end of my DIY list. Looking forward I probably won't get around to it until another 12 months (hard to say atm) but I'll do my best to remember to resurrect this thread with some pics when it's done, so for now there's not much to report on sorry.

Meanwhile as a temp solution I use a Nest Cam to view incoming weather (this is my Cloud Watcher). It gives me about a 15-20 minute warning before the clouds reach my observing location, which is just enough time for me to finish my coffee before I have to close the roof.
