Have an observatory? Used to have an observatory? Have a mobile observatory? Used to have a mobile observatory? Does it have a dome? Does it have a roll-off roof? Did you convert a plastic storage shed into an observatory? Why not post a picture or two then? Come on! If you've never posted a picture of your observatory here in the Observatories Forum, and you have one, now's the time to show everyone what you've got (Buyers of an Explora-Dome will be granted a 6 months "Grace Period"...myself included)

Love the black & white Unitron look. The whole place has a sort of art-deco feel. (You should put up a big poster of the Chrysler building somewhere inside.)

Can you post a few details about the building proper? The roof design looks very interesting.
Here you go.

Love your website and refuge. Been contemplating interior colors myself and I like your white "treatment". Everything has that proper astro feel to it

What material is covering the floor?

I thought about doing the interior in a dark color but decided it would be unnecessarily oppressive-- especially considering I am mostly a bright object observer by choice as well as necessity anyway. White is definately a cheeerier color!
The floor is finished with glossy vinyl tile. The local dollar store had 3packs for $1 each so the whole floor only cost me 40$ to finish.

I have been looking at various homebuilt observatories for several weeks, now, and I have to say that is one of the most innovative designs I've seen. I might shamelessly steal it!
Thanks for the additional info,
