Gina posted a topic in DIY ObservatoriesFollowing on from my other mini-observatory threads, I'm now thinking of a small dome observatory for my widefield imaging rig. Several previous ideas for a mini observatory have bitten the dust! I have a number of thin aluminium sheets the I bought for my earlier cylindrical roof mini obsy that can be bent into the sections of a multi-sided dome. Why a dome? Well, it is more compact, requires less power to drive - this observatory and contents will be fully automated - and a dome provides more protection from wind etc. No space is required inside for a person in this case - just a Raspberry Pi 3 for controlling everything with INDI drivers. Not even a laptop.
