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.

New roof plan

 OK here goes plan 2 for the roof, due to the eave overhang I can't hinge at the base of the roof so am going to put the hinges higher up. This will help reduce the weight of the roof too.


ROOF OPEN (one side)

You can also see I'm working on the idea of using threaded bar to tie the two roof half together when closed.
