Quote:Visited our local Sam's Club yesterday and came across an assembled Apex 4 x 6 room. It's footprint measures 51" across the front, 75" deep - and a substantial 82.5" at its peak. Because of its height, it might work well as a safe house for a rollout telescope - or with some modifications to it's molded floor - as a roll-away observatory. Looks good, too - especially for those limited to use of a small footprint. More details may be found at: www.Keter.com

I'd have to build something out of materials and of a style resembling that of my house to pass muster with the Ahh-cah-tech-tural com-mit-hhee.Fortunately however, my house as-is already has a great "safe house" for my scopes and gear: a two-car garage (that doesn't face the street when open) with clean, smooth concrete floors, which isn't used to park our cars.
My eyepieces are made from the waste product of exploding stars.
