Yes an excellent edition. Well done David and team. It is great to see the work we are doing on our observatory in Nottingham mentioned. It is still very much work in progress but we are getting there. I will write up a report for the Section in due course about the final version and the issues we faced. The current intermittent issue relates to the surface of the capstan; too “dry” and the rope doesn’t slip well, but too “shiny” and there is insufficient friction. It’s all good fun.
