Small Astronomical Observatories; Patrick Moore [editor]; Springer-Verlag 1996; chpt. 6 - ISBN 3-540-19913-6

I have gone thru this thread & edited out links that no longer work, & off topic posts. This should make it a little easier to navigate the thread.
My observatory in post #36 is now dead. It has been replaced with an observatory twice the size now with a new site documenting it's build.

I love your observatory. The workmanship is of the highest quality.

Our website, curiositypeak.us, has a slide show showing the stages of construction. Our
roll-off is very different from most. If you're interested in knowing more about it email or call us. Doug Sollosy
