Today, I'm continuing work on the wall-unit, combination bookshelf and entertainment center that goes across this wall (about 20 feet square space inside the theater room). ON the opposite wall, we have a pull-down 100" screen, with a 780p projector mounted on the ceiling above the wall unit near the center of the wall.
The cables you see hanging down above the open bookcase-secret doorway are the worms that go to the telescope, out of sight above.
I'm using the ladder again while I work on it, but have some rolling/folding scaffold that's behind the wall on the right for the time being, that I'll use for general access to work on the telescope. It's got a camera in it and one piggyback on it for a finder, so I never actually LOOK through it!
After I finish the wall unit, (today, I'm putting up crown and baseboard moldings to further hide the door and finish off the cabinet), we need to move some lighting around and put in some outlets, then we'll work on the ceiling. The door under the scope will slide from the corner into the center above the wall unit. We're planning on designing the door and other three corners of the ceiling to look the same, and the tracks for the door to mimic the "beams" dividing the ceiling into a sort of tic-tac-toe pattern. Hopefully, then, when the door is close under the scope and I'm shut in behind the bookcase, nobody will know I'm imaging!
...except everyone who we've showed it to in person and all who read about it here!
