Thanks for your feedback; much appreciated.
I see I have created bit of a confusion about my plans. The red rectangle is the total size of the deck 10x16 which also houses the warming shed. Reason for such a design is underling geography of the backyard as shown below. Note: One can walk off the deck toward NE but the drop of the other sides is high.
I would like to avoid bay overhang since I might have to build an 'open deck', to use your words, atop that particular bay area and would like to have some deck space to work with.
S or SW may be a good location for the pod door; I left that space between the pod and warming shed for a walkway/exit off the deck. Sloping of the landscape below will explain this better. Rest of the space toward SW is mainly to have some room to walk around, enter/exit pod easily, etc. Space in front of the warming shed I am thinking may be used to setup a temporary tripod for occasional viewing.
One far fetched idea is to have three anchored spots in front of the shed for tripod based visual observings for occasional visitors where deck vibrations could be mitigated. Note: Pod will be dedicated to imaging.
