All,

 

Will be doing a major reno on our home and have the opportunity to build a deck off side of the second floor to place telescope platform. Sort of like a balcony off to the side where you could stand (not enough room for a full up covered observatory) with a pier coming up from the ground through the center. I would build a small enclosure for the telescope that would be removed for observing.

 

I'm looking for images to show the architect and for the life of me, after spending hours on Google images, despite many combos of the various words, turning up nada. Even a search on this forum is not finding me much. I've seen a number of examples over the years, just not able to find them now. I can't even find an image to place in this post!

 

Hope this is clear. Would greatly appreciate any examples people have. I going to continue to look and I'll edit this post when I get something that looks close to what I'm looking for.,

 

Thanks!!

Thanks for this. Do you have an actual link so I can view the images better?
