I have two large telescopes and want to get this observatory finally going. My 25" f5 dob and my 9" f7.7 istar achro refractor on my losmandy tripod.
No pier, as I cannot have a permanent set up on the ground In order to avoid additional taxes.
Unfortunately this means I'll need the whole thing on a deck (Including the support beams to hold the roof while it's off).
I bought the skyshed plans which are great, and I'm thinking about going with the 10'x14' observatory.
Does anyone have any tips for my approach? The plans show windows on the front wall, is that really necessary?
Any insight or advice is welcome about this non permanent structure observatory.
