I am almost complete on my observing area/shed. I posted a few pics in an earlier post of mine which was about a trolley I'd made, hoping eventually to construct a viewing platform and shed.

I've photographed the build as it progressed. Progress was fairly slow but hard graft has brought good results.

I decided against a roll-off roof, as I didn't have a budget the size of the American defense system.

By the way the foreman in one of the pics is our family dog, who seem to enjoy digging up my foundations.

I've installed a solar system for the lighting etc.

I'll happily give any details, if I can encourage others to do something similar

This is the sort of thing I have been working on but only managed so far to get the shed in place and a few bits setup in it. I have a bit of a gap between the shed and the area where the scope will go but hopefully will make it all work out.

I came across a few problems which I had to overcome, but a few simple ideas soon sorted them. If I can be of any help, give me a shout.

Looks really good.

I guess there is a trailing lead for the mount and dew heater?

Also guess the camera makes the red lighting seem brighter than it is...

Hi Gordon,

I have since purchased an Altair GP224c cam, which is connected to my laptop via a usb cable. power for the RA mount comes from a 12v battery which has a 6v voltage regulator. The 72 red LEDS are bright and give good light in the shed to see.
