Precipitation measuring device
This is the Tracy Press rain gauge, a high tech device featuring an injection molded clear polycarbonate body, twist lock top cap and a modern equatorial wooden base mount with right ascension and declination markings scribed into the surface.
Ok, who am I trying to kid, it has a cracked plastic tube mounted on a wooden post that has a lean going to the right and is hung on the post with rusty nails. But hey, it still works.
