Halfmoon Steam Observatory
Pictures of the Inside,
these pictures are older soon to be replaced
when I get a new camera.
Box for the computer Insulated
Box for the LCD monitor
I have since replaced
the keyboard and mouse with cordless versions but I have to use
lithium batteries when the
temps drop below 10
degrees F. The monitor has a clear fixed piece of plexiglass in
front with 1/4" air space, then there is
a 1/4 inch piece of
red and 2 - 1/8 inch pieces of gray to change when i want it darker
or lighter. I have seen my LCD monitor
get hard to read when
it was 15 degrees don't you know it I had changed the power supply
and forgot to hook up the heater!
Closed insulated box for computer
