These pictures are great unfortunately I live outside nyc and my property doesn't have the room most of you seem to have.

Here is a shot of my observatory as it was being built. You can see the hole in the roof of the shop building.

Bravo to you. Many would say no way Jose' on building it over a roof. I say do what ever it takes. When seeing is hot and humid soak the roof for 15-20 minutes with a garden hose!!!! Mike

Here are a few pics. First one is the site on the NMSU campus in Las Cruces, NM. They have three observatories for student use. Got to use these back in the 90's now and again. 14" SCT's if I recall and great skies.
The other one is my future Ob location at my dark site in red. Plan to break ground this fall. The orange arrow indicates my existing rain catch. No water or power out there yet.

Blackdog Observatory central Arizona located at 6,650' elevation. About 50 miles east of the Discovery Channel Telescope. The site analysis for the DCT demonstrated sub-arcsec seeing often. I believe I have the same.
