      Hi Ken,

      Nice to see you here :-) I am waiting for the delivery of one SQM-LE unit. How difficult is it to install the device via Ethernet cable ?

      How did you solve the enclosure problem in order to leave it outside all the time ?

      By the way I am still with the Losmandy G11 mounts :-)

      regards Rainer
