My first foray into a semi-permanent set-up for my Meade LX-200 10" SCT on the upstairs balcony of my rented house in Mae Pa, Mae Sot, Thailand. The green fabric roof was fine in the dry winter months to keep the sun off but the construction of a hard, fibro roof on wheels that could be rolled open was a much more weather-secure advancement and it worked well so long as I did not move around.
