Observatory - main section


In 2015 I decided that I wanted to move to automated observing (basically due to the UK weather and the fact that I like my sleep) - so, after a bit of research, I decided to go for a Ian King Roll Off Off Observatory - mainly due to Ian's excellent reputation and the fact that it came with various options such as an electric roof and a cloud sensor/electric roof controller that where Ascom and ACP weather alerts compatible.  I decided on the smallest size available since I wanted it to blend into my garden as much as possible.  Since I was interested in automation, I decided on a very small warm room, basically just large enough for someone to get inside. My design philosophy was that main power and ancillary equipment would, as far as practical, go in the warm room and low voltage equipment would go in the main obsey.
