Weather sensor and roller roof motor

Greetings all

I need some urgent contacts re getting a weather sensor included in an observatory build. Has anyone done this type of sensor and roll off roof combo before?

Cheers Petra

Petra I have never done this before but if you need some real Information and this man has it talk to Peter Ward on this Forum.
He has everything that opens and shuts when he images from anywhere in the world while he flies around.

Maybe a starting point.

Depending on your scope and observatory design, remember to think about where the scope is pointing when the roof starts to shut. Do you need to put the scope into a safe position before the roof starts to close?
