Building a roll off and intend to use NINA for control. Was wondering if NINA has the ability to park the scope and close the roof if inclement weather (rain, clouds) occurs during an imaging session?

I just saw this. Sorry for being off-topic. Since you're building it, I'd suggest you find an architectural solution to avoid needing to have the scope parked in order to close the roof without damaging the scope. Or instead put a Klaxon Horn in your house that will go off when the weather becomes unsafe so you can go out there are close it up yourself safely. That way you even avoid the garage door units and the shaking start/stop too :-)  I've seen the "interlock sensors etc" thing end up in a trail of tears more than once.
