Warmer rabbits

Posted: 2014-10-04

Finally got hold of the insulation for the rabbits bedroom.

It's 5cm thick expanded polystyrene. For now that's enough.

I have fitted a special low voltage heater that will keep the area between 12C and 15C - but we don't need that until later - and I'll only turn it on once I have temperature monitoring in place too.

The floor is waterproofed with damp-proofing membrane (since I have a roll lying around) - on top of that will go a layer of newspapers then straw.

A first test of the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer tracker head. This shot is made up of 10 shots - each 2 mins at f/2,8 ISO 100 14mm. Merged using Starry Landscape Tracker then adjusted in PS (merged in one shorter exposure at the bottom to get a a sharper land silhouette. You can see that even out of town - still struggling with light pollution - far too much light in the sky. But - still fun to play with.

Introduction between a norweigan fjord horse and a halfling to see if they could share a paddock. The introduction went well - they now keep each other company in the paddock every day
