List of Observatories
Posted 21 April 2007 - 11:34 AM
The "Links of Interest" thread above is good but is out of date and contains comments and other posts of interest. "Observatories only" would make searching a little easier IMHO.

But I think it would be helpful here at CN to have a succinct index of the observatories built by members.

I'd be happy to but how about people posting about their obs ala "post a pic of your observatory" but make it sticky?
No replies allowed.
I don't have time to dig for threads right now. I'm setting my pier blocks. (If you use batter boards for layout, be sure to offset them far enough beyond where you dig your footings or you will be moving them and starting over again.) :bangbangbang:

Is there a website with construction details or a construction thread about your obs here on CN?
Well I guess I'll PM the moderator and ask that this post and those before Scott's be deleted as well as making it "sticky".

While work inside continues, First Light was last evening. The ISS sensor pack to my weather station can also be seen.
More info on the Observatory & weather station can found here. Sola Virtus Observatory and Farpoint Weather Station

This is an immediate post-construction pic; much interior customizing has taken place since.
