my first attempt at building a shed observatory, i wish i built it bigger now but its cosy and i guess its big enough for me,fully insulated walls,floor,roof,complete with internet hook up, 2computers one purely for controlling my scope using starry night pro ,and my other computer for imaging,i decided to insulate cos i wanted spend time in there processing images etc,complete with gas fire,tea maker and tomo be drinks cooler for refreshments :-) yes the walls need painting darker,i bought the 3mm sheeting that colour, they use it to board caravans out and it was cheap and did the job, i probably paint it next year but to be honest it dont really reflect much at night, obviously in the photos and blaring sunlight it bright.maybe i build bigger better one in few years but im pleased so far with it.

outside walls and roof are covered in 15mm hard plastic tongue grooved material they use for caravans such as statics,came at a cheap price and i think finishes the job
