Hitec Weather USB

HitecWeather USB is the little brother of the two weather sensors, however its function is very different.  HitecWeather USB contains a cloud sensor and ambient temperature sensor.  However it is presented in a much smaller package and is designed to be mounted on the end of your OTA.  The field of view of the sensor is restricted to 10 degrees and points where your telescope is looking thereby providing accurate sensing of cloud where you are imaging only. It’s no=t as functional as the Weather Deluxe if your sky is clear and a pesky cloud is hanging in front of your target that night. With HitecWeather USB you get instant updates on your computer screen to tell you what the sky is like where your scope is looking.
