One thing on the poly roof. I did the same in my obs and it turned it into a greenhouse in the summer. Fully 10ºC hotter on the inside.

I have considered the heat in the summer. If it becomes and issue I am planning on putting up styrofoam boards in between the purlins. They will be held up by friction so that when I want to go in the observatory during the day I can just pull a couple of panels out to let in the light.

I saw this on your Flickr page. Very nice! Good job on the observatory and nice setup!

I hear ya about the weather. I've lived in the NW for more than a decade and this is the worst I've seen so far!
Let's hope for clear skies soon
