Rebuild rabbit sensor to single wire bus

OK - so I decided to move the arduino end of the temperature sensor to the other end of the connection - that is indoors.

This means that I use the ethernet cable as a simple onewire bus wire - not as an ethernet cable - and also means that I don't have to have the arduino in a weatherproof box.

So the circuit design now looks like this:

And soldered up - you can see the red/black power, blue (LED) and yellow (1wire bus) hookup wires that go to the arduino and the end of the network wire heading off to the sensors. The sensors themselves are connected in parallel with the sensor wire connected to blue, the ground to blue/white and the power to brown. No other wires in the ethernet cable are in use.

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.
