Here's my humble abode. It was used as a film warehouse in the 90s. At any one time there would be 1000s of 500 foot Kodak and Cinerex medical film rolls stored inside. Heavy insulation and air conditioning kept conditions right. The industry now uses CDs for imaging making this my Observatory base. Those steps on the front come up 9 feet covering the ground floor. Then the second floor has a 10 foot ceiling with an 8 foot floor on the third. The warm room is in the roofed in 4th. floor area with folding steps to the observatory. Let's just say moving a 14" LX200 GPS up all those steps (57) to the observatory is a ..... challenge. But it does make a nice platform.
I'm redoing the website right now and will post a link later. (Answered Joel below by PM).
The link will be www.Astro.Medical-Dynamics.net

Hi all, Anyone own an observatory manufactured by Home Observatories Ltd based in Dungannon Co Tyrone ?
Their website looks good. They do a 2.2 metre GRP Dome model evo4 black and white. Would be pleased to hear of any experiences of these as I am about to buy one. ?

This is my backyard retreat, Oh many a beer has been drunk in here.
I keep the trees down to 12 feet so they don't get in the way, I get fair dark skies looking south and shocking skies north
