New Observatory




Wayne Parker of Glass Tiger fame (bass player), has his own company called "Skyshed Observatories". After many years in the planning stage he has just rolled out POD "Personal Observatory Dome". I have just received mine today. It is extremely affordable and of the highest quality. Observatories are the ultimate accessory for any amateur astronomer, as it keeps away stray light, keeps the dew down and off your lenses and mirrors of your scopes, and allows you to leave your scope and equipment set up which saves hours of labor and time which can be better put towards viewing time. I have posted a few pics of the observatory.

This is so neat! I have never seen a POD before. Looks like a cool command center in your backyard.
