  1. Here is a thought, sync the dome opening to a weather station and always keep the slot pointed into the wind. At least that way you will know which way the water ingress will be from and maybe make weather sealing easier. Or at least more reliable.
  2. You're welcome, glad to help out. After finishing, you'll be the AVX expert here on SGL and can advise me when I work on mine ; )

  6. I did something similar, but not nearly as elegant as mattifor's pier and it's not portable which I didn't need.

Sorry didn't mean to hijack the thread.
  7. Congratulations! I would've celebrated with something better than Budwiser, like Belhaven unless you're waiting for photos with your Mak do do that.
