The attendance has swelled considerably today with many amateurs having to put up their tents in the rain. Trade stands have been busy setting up too ready for the open days this weekend.
Another arrival was Ian Morison, from Jodrell Bank, who is also a visual observer and telescope expert. Despite not bringing the poles for his tent, Ian rather impressively managed to jury-rig his temporary home into a stable and habitable structure. The picture shows Ian working on the inner tent.
