Observatory Repairs

After last months repair work on the observatory dome proved only partially successful, further work was required again recently. The water leak had still persisted in part of the dome and the rather wet weather had caused a stream of water to spill into the dome (luckily only into the carefully placed drip bucket).

And so, during one of the rare dry days, Stuart, Roger and Neil climbed to the dizzy heights of the observatory roof to slap on more bitumen paint and attached further roof felt. Hopefully this will remedy the problem, but only time and a several heavy showers will tell.
