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

My observatory is open air, with Bortle 7.5-8 skies and trees blocking from N-SE and S-NW, only having 50 degrees of view to S-SE and same N-NW, I haven't been able to justify an observatory. But I built a platform and use a Skyview Pro EQ mount. Do mostly solar as the LP doesn't affect solar very much.

Wow - impressive observatories You've all got.
I had only been in the amateur astronomy business for a couple of years before I realized that an observatory would make it so much easier.
So I constructed "Maia Observatory" in the summer of 2016 and I have never been observing as much and often as the past year!!!
Here's a link to my shed, unfortunately the page language is in danish

Here's my Clear Sky's observatory.
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
I see myself falling in love with the look and functionality of these Pods. Thanks for sharing.
