One Small Step for…………..

Bizibilder popped into town today and found some 50mm x 50mm plastic angle for use in tidying up the step at the door end of the observatory.  This has worked well and the white colour should show the step well enough in the dark! IMG_0285
The step from inside – the plastic goes all the way across to generally tidy the whole edge up. IMG_0286
Another purchase today – some red document covers pressed into service to make “red light” lantern and light – Astronomers use red lights to allow them to see without ruining dark–adapted eyesight.

The mains light that you see only has a 15watt bulb in it – it runs warm but not hot, as there is now almost no ventilation at all!!
