Amateur Astrophotography setup selling as a complete package this backyard observatory setup.
Moving and have decided to build an observatory into the new house and upgrade my gear so I don’t have to worry about transporting it all…. The observatory is 10x8 building with manual roll off roof that I have sitting on blocks so I could do future upgrade of a Pier inside it but I discovered this was not necessary since I only go inside to turn things on and then completely run it from inside my house over WIFI network and therefore cause no movement or disturbance to the observatory located about 100FT out in field behind house.I ran an extension cord to it for power and started blacking out the interior but have just been content using it and never trenched out to it for power and Ethernet since I have it working just fine for my skill level anyway.. Buyer will need to semi disassemble, secure and move it themselves… The front two vertical 4X4 post are set in concrete so those will not be reusable…. You will need to purchase a few 4X4’s or whatever to re-assemble and finish customize to your needs … See pics on how this is setup. Overall this has worked out very well for me and certainly enjoyed the experience…. Selling all as a package together and don’t really want to separate …This includes the following….
