Doodson-Lége Tide Predictor

The proximity of Bidston Observatory and the changing nature of research at that institution has enabled us to acquire all its past astronomical equipment.

Items include the Chronometer Hot Box, 8.5" Merz equatorial refractor and the associated astronomical regulators and Oesler anemometer. This constitutes about 100 items in total.

We have also acquired non-electronic oceanographic equipment. These include the internationally important Roberts-Lege Tide Predictor, Doodson-Lége Tide Predictor, Doodson Current Gauge and Fave and Lege Tide gauges.
