Okay I have not managed to get any further with the building part of the Observatory but I have not been sat about not doing anything. I have found a suitable computer to run all the hardware in the Obs, also I have a UPS supply for that just in case situation. The only hardware I need to locate is a Flat screen monitor. I have found a Weather application for my blog but at this moment in time I am not sure how it works, I am sure I will fathom that out in time.
I am going to draw up some plans in the next day which I will obviously post on here for all to see.
