Astronomical observations are strongly dependant from weather,
this is obvious! So I've installed a cheap weather station to monitor
the main meteorological parameters. The station is a LaCrosse WS2350
a classical affordable solution between amateurs. The price in 2009 was
around 130 €. I've added a solar shield for accurate temperature
measurements: this was made by meteo expert Luigi Carbonera
The positioning is near my observatory, in my garden at city center, at about 4 m height.
The main measurements are:
- relative humidity
- wind speed and direction
- rain quantity
I'd like to add some more stuff in the future.
The meteo measurements are available in real time from this page
