Split roof observatory open (in-construction)

Split roof observatory open (in-construction)

Snapshot with slide-out roof sections extended (slide North and South). North section is slightly larger so doesn’t fully ‘clear’ edge of north wall. Should be no issues seeing over open roof to align on Polaris with 42” pier height and Paramount ME II. Photo taken 5/21/20. Have received siding and roofing materials so planned schedule is two more ‘working weeks’ (depending on finicky Maryland weather). Then I’m hoping that observatory (although will be ‘rough’ with using extension cord to pier) will be ready for some first use in July.
