I used proper steel armoured cable for the mains terminated into galvanised boxes both ends with the proper glands RCCD protected the "house" end...... other cables can go in alkathene water pipe or HD hose...... Can always cover the lot with broken roof tiles or flat stone...

Oh, how fantastic that it's finally up and almost ready to use. I've been very much looking forward to you getting back into it and you're almost there. I bet that's a brilliant feeling. :D

And what a beautiful obsy. Can't imagine why any wife would complain about such a building in the garden.

Now that is one smart looking obsy Ron. It's going to be great having the ability to choose between widefield or long focal length without having to swap scopes around.

Yep!, there's only one way to do a job like that Peter, and that is the professional way. Electricity is a silent but deadly friend.

I too have used alkathene water pipe. Mine is buried 40 cm down and is protected with electric cable warning tape.
