Heck...all the other forums are "doin' it". Post a pic. of your reflector...post a pic. of your refractor...post a pic. of your mount

Have an observatory? Used to have an observatory? Have a mobile observatory? Used to have a mobile observatory? Does it have a dome? Does it have a roll-off roof? Did you convert a plastic storage shed into an observatory? Why not post a picture or two then? Come on! If you've never posted a picture of your observatory here in the Observatories Forum, and you have one, now's the time to show everyone what you've got (Buyers of an Explora-Dome will be granted a 6 months "Grace Period"...myself included)

Mardi --

Love the black & white Unitron look. The whole place has a sort of art-deco feel. (You should put up a big poster of the Chrysler building somewhere inside.)

Cheers,
-- Jeff.

Can you post a few details about the building proper? The roof design looks very interesting.

Mardi,
Love your website and refuge. Been contemplating interior colors myself and I like your white "treatment". Everything has that proper astro feel to it

Mardi -- the entire of your observatory is just beautiful! I love the black/white thing. The color of the cart, the frames of the frames of the photos, the focusers and mounting rings set in all of that white. I love it.

What material is covering the floor?
