  1. I have plans to build my observatory on the roof of the house due to space restrictions, but this provides for massive security gains. If a burglar can get that far, I have far bigger things to worry about than a $10,000 to $20,000 worth of gear. By then they would have cleared out the furniture, TV & amp, whatever limited jewelry they run across as well as my watches computers and tools.... Not to mention the feeling of being violated, you can't put a price tag on that. So I figure, if my house is secure enough to deter thieves, my asto-gear is naturally secure as a consequence. Also, you
  2. Looking into your suggestion now. It also just occurred to me that I can used a motorized awning as a roof
  3. A friend of mine showed me his newly constructed roll of roof observatory, but portability is a concern, I want to buy once. Since I plan to build a new house in a few years time, I am reluctant to commit my money to a fixed structure. The observatory my friend made is huge, big enough to make comfortable bedroom that can hold a full complement of furnishing. I believe a prefabricated observatory can be dismantled for moving with ease, allowing me to move it to the new house whenever I get around to actually building it.
  4. I'm aware of the sky glow It's a constant battle especially with the oil refinery down the street. I do deep sky imaging with light pollution filters as well as plans to move to narrow band imaging. The reason for wanting a dome is set up time. I can handle the weight, but it is frustrating and there is always a risk of damaging equipment or the house's doors and marble from moving things in and out every night. My gear in total comes close to 100 Kg, I don't enjoy bringing that in and out every night I want to use it.
  5. I live in a concrete jungle No leveling to do, everything around is me has sharp 90 degree angles and the only round things are the drainage pipes and light poles. Observatory is going on my concrete roof (not many choices as to where to put it when your estate consists of a grand total of 200 m2.
  6. I've been referred here from cloudy nights forum, since I wanted to know about a European product. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, since it's technically not a DIY observatory. I was wondering if anybody has tried the pulsar observatory domes. I am interested in buying one but have not found many reviews of it. Looking forward to hearing your responses.
