Eric,As you say the safety issue is the main worry.As to why your machine failed. If it was cold initially then damp could have got in. My advice would be to start the machine indoors for a laptop or keep it running if you have a desktop permanently in the observatory. If I recall, ordinary commercial computers are only designed to work in the 0 – 30 Celsius range. Did the machine recover after warming up indoors?RegardsDavid
