Over the past few months I've been building a weather station as detailed here at Meteo Station.

Some of the key features are
    Temperature
    Humidity
    Barometer
    Radiance
    Cloud Sensor
    Dew Point
    Graphs of the history

It uses an Arduino to collect the data from various sensors and a Linux server to generate and display a dashboard via a web interface. The intention was to use a raspberry pi but it seems there wasn't enough volts to power everything. They must of wired it up differently when they did there own install. So I've yet to find a use for the damn thing! :roll:

File comment: Solar panel to measure radiance an I.R temperature sensor to measure cloud cover. The IR was installed out of the box so it would not detect heat of the lid.
The white board was glued under the lid to reflect direct sunlight away from the temperature sensors.

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......
