The weather station in use is a Fine Offset Wh1091 and the webcam is a Microsoft True 720p HD Lifecam Cinema.
The weatherproof housing is a CCD Professional Aluminium external/internal camera housing, part nuber QC3330
from Jaycar Electronics. The funnel over the rain gauge collects about three times the amount of rain which is
calabrated by multiplying the rainfall value by .32. This enables increments of .1mm instead of the standard .3mm.
The home made "Stevenson Screen" is made from my wife's old picnic setting.
