We present results from an experiment designed to measure the anisotropy in the cosmic microwave background at degree angular scales. This experiment has now run for two seasons. Data from the first season (SK93) shows fluctuations of amplitude $33_{-9}^{+10} \mu\,$K, at a 1.2\deg~correlation angle, with a spectral index in temperature of $-0.3_{-1.2}^{+0.7}$. Preliminary results from the second season (SK94) with extended frequency coverage will also be presented. These data allow a more precise measurement of the observed anisotropy, and improved limits on the spectral index.
