Does anyone know of a combination photocell & timer controller for a low voltage outdoor lighting project? Answered

Looking for a combi photocell & timer light controller for use in solar powered outdoor trail lighting project that can turn on set of lights at dusk and off after 2-3 hours to conserve battery life.
Preferably the switch/controller would be cheap, durable, and weatherproof. 

Thanks for any info,

I am looking for the same thing for my chicken tractor. I'm going to use a small sealed lead battery, solar panel and LED light bar. I am looking to turn on the light for about 1-4 hours in the winter and turn off. Using a Red Board Arduino platform.
