Grant,

My only experience of USB over Ethernet has been very bad, and that was using a pro system in work. Much easier to buy a cheap PC from ebay, stick it in the observatory, leave it running permanently, connect a Cat 6 LAN cable to it, then run all the USB connections locally. You can then either remote desktop to it or run ASCOM remote from inside. Much more reliable and it’ll set you back £50 or so.
