Now that I'm getting older I have decided to make a permanent home for my telescope. As having to lug my heavy Meade 10" Schmit Newtonian out side every time I use it is not going to get any easier in the future.

So here I'll be blogging all the trials, tribulations, successes and failures (of which there will be many I'm sure) of building an astronomical observatory from scratch.

First Night (Test)

 Had a trip to Highland Industrial Supplies today to get some hardware Hinges/ handles/ fixings ect, Oh yes, and a new washing line for the wife as the remains of hers is incased in two tonnes of concrete!
I fitted a handle to the inside of the roof to help shut it firmly.


 When I opened the roof I was greeted with this sight, LOVELY!!!!



My youngest, enjoys the views of Venus, Jupiter and the moon.





My turn!

I think there may be a queue at the eyepiece when this project is finally finished.
