I'm not so sure about that installation, or the siting, but whatever...

Can you consider a better installation? I would hate to see the Atlas get broken in a high wind. Maybe get the wind extension and put the Atlas close to the ground?

PVC pipe and electrical tape?  That's a very... uh...  interesting installation you've got there.  Hopefully that's rigid enough to prevent wobble, because if it starts to wobble it won't record rain or wind properly.

Nice station though.  I'll probably get one of those in the future when my 5-n-1 dies.
