Prefab Kit Observatories

There’s Polydome, makers of the Explora-dome. And Sky Shed, makers of the Pod. What other makers of prefab kit observatories are there?

Most of the observatories are kits, meaning assembly is required. The big difference is the price. Sirius and Technical Innovations are 2 other makers that came to mind.

Technical Innovations (which I am using) has a preassembly option that will save time and effort. It is reasonably price but not free.

Sirius Observatories come standard with everything drilled quite accurately and preassembled before shipping. Mine went together quite easily.
