I purchased this observatory to use at star parties with high wind conditions and it is perfect for this. It is basically a tent on steroids. There is an excellent article/review here on Cloudy Nights https://www.cloudyni...strogazer-r1679

I used it for a temporary observatory for a couple of weeks at a friends hunting camp while I was building my permanent observatory there. That's why I no longer need it, I have a permanent building in place now.

The observatory comes in 3 bags. Two of them are the long bags with rollers that pop up awnings come in that everyone uses at star parties. The third bag is a flat bag that holds the tent material.

Astrogizmos sold these on their site for a couple of thousand dollars and they no longer sell them. This is not typical tent material. It's a very heavy durable tarp used in commercial circus tents and is rated to last for years outdoors.

I am asking $1000 plus shipping, which will probably be expensive due to the size and weight. If you want to come to Louisiana to pick it up, in addition to saving the shipping, I will help you set it up one time, although all of the parts are color coded and it's not that hard to figure out on your own.
