Photo Information for Observatory 3

Recommended Comments

Looks terrific Neil?. Is the Pier in place inside there, and the mount facing North ?
I spotted an electric radiator  In the Warm Room area, which  is probably  screened off from the Obsy. itself.
You should get a lot of work done in there as long as the skies  cooperate.
If that's a self build,  you've done a cracking job matey.

Hi Barkis,

Thanks for your kind comments.

The pier wasnt in there when the photos were taken, but it is now, all set up and fully operational, see attached photo with Sky-Watcher extension tube fitted so I can see right down to the horizon. The warm room is indeed partitioned off from the observatory & is also used by my wife for her art work.

I wish I could claim it was a self build, but it was built by a company called "OUTSIDEOLOGY", they did an absolute amazing job and I can fully recommend them. 


From their website there are links to their facebook & instagram pages, with more photos & plans to it.

I built my own Obs. and it isn't too dissimilar to yours, except I painted mine Spruce Green to
match the fences around my garden.
If guys have the room for an observatory, it is worth while having one, with permission of her indoors of course ?.
