While I don't have an observatory, I think it's always nice to see astronomy-related articles on a widely-circulated newspaper.

This is a good article. I still haven't spent 20K so I guess I have some room to grow.
I think that price tag includes all the equipment.

I keep telling her: 1,000 for the "shed", 2,000 for scopes and stuff

I keep telling myself that one over and over again. I almost believe it.

Well.. some of us can I imagine if you're trying to make it completely 'remote', you could spend that much. But if your arms are tired and you want it to close automatically...
If you can truly imagine that low a cost, please don't talk to the CFO at my house!
