At some time last night the wind tore the upper shutter and the retaining bracket from the small dome roof. Peter was the first responder and with typical resourcefulness managed to repair the fixing bolts so we were able to reassemble the shutters.There was no evidence of damage to the telescopes, but the carpet was soaked. Care needs to be taken when closing the dome to ensure that the bolts on the lower shutter are properly engaged.
