It finally arrived today. Must admit I was surprised at how big it is. I think I made the right decision going for the LiteCrawler rather than the NiteCrawler for my application. Fired it up and all seems to be moving as expected. Not only does it function beautifully, like all Moonlite products it looks the business.

Can't wait to start drilling holes in the ota.

Thanks Geoff. It looks nicely in proportion with the Camera now but might need to get a bigger OTA.

I don't see the Litecrawler for sale on moonlite's web page.
Was interested in the price compared to its bigger brother.

I was kind of surprised at the size too when I received mine. Seeing it in the "flesh" sometimes puts a different perspective on it even when you previously knew the dimensions and weight.

Got it all fitted to the SN10 today. I spent a lot of time making sure the holes were drilled in the right location. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Looking forward to giving it a try however as expected a storm is now passing overhead.
