DSE 2.0: Week 5 - Design Complete
Here is a quick sketchup animation of the new observatory. We have decided not to re-use the existing ExploraDome after all. It's too small for the size we are trying to build.
The new building will be 12'x20' with two rooms and a 9' wide dome. I have hired a good friend of mine Richard Bourque to design and construct the dome. The dome will house my current equipment and will leave plenty of room for an upgrade. On the deck we have a storage area suitable for a 16-25" dobsonian telescope. The 12' deck will allow for plenty of observing room.
