Observatory extension

It seems that as my kit has a reproductive cycle of its own mind, I need to extend the observatory. So far it has housed a number of rigs, the most recent being the TMB and Mesu. In November of 2017 I acquired all the bits for a dual rig and it's been sat on my terrace ever since, through wind and rain under a cover. Not ideal I've decided that the observatory would be extended so that the dual rig can be put in the obs.

The original build was in about 2014 and there's a way to extend it along with some general maintenance and rebuild of the out-building complex.

Here's how the original observatory looked.....
