This is not about an observatory per se. If this is not the right place, please accept my apology and let me know where this is better posted.
I’m building a workroom for my C11 in the 2nd bay in my garage. The telescope is on a scope-buggy which I roll out for astrophotography. I’m looking for suggestions/advice re: configuring the workroom to be efficient and secure.
I’m interested in what has been most useful for shelves, drawers, storage, lighting, etc. in the space in which you keep your telescope. What are the best solutions you have found in your observatory for storing accessories, filters, cameras, and spare parts? It would be great to see a photo if you have one.
I’m thinking about the ribbon lighting with both red and white light options. What has worked best for you in your observatory?
I will run power to that area and install a couple of outlets to charge the batteries and run the lights. I’m wondering about adding a small heater for the cold and damp weather. Do you have something that has worked for you?
What do you do to secure your telescope? My garage door will be locked. Do you do anything else to prevent theft?
Thank you for taking the time!
