Subject: vacuum gauge for gyro system 

 I realised that I had not bought a vacuum gauge for the gyro system.  The simplest solution seemed to be to use a wide-range gauge so we don't need to worry about damaging the gauge if the pressure creeps up too high.  I've ordered a combination gauge from Kurt Lesker that gives atmosphere down to 1e-9 Torr with an analogue output so we can hook it up to a DAQ channel.
