Observatory Domes

Over the past few years manufacturers have added more and more technology to our backyard telescopes, turning many into powerful scientific instruments. Unfortunately, all the added technology means it takes a lot more time to set up and tear down all that equipment.

With life becoming ever more hectic, many astronomers find they are doing LESS observing than they have in the past. All this fantastic technology, and their sizeable investment, sits unused in the corner of a room, or buried in the garage.

What is needed is both a permanent and mobile solution to house and operate telescopic equipment at a moment’s notice, whether in the backyard or in the field.

The solution is the SkyShed POD (Personal Observatory Dome) – a sensibly-priced personal observatory that combines an evolutionary patent pending design with the same long-lasting material that’s been used for decades in agricultural products and outdoor structures world-wide.

The POD’s low cost and high quality, along with its innovative design, make it the perfect alternative to much higher priced observatory solutions. Three versions are available, with enough options to let you customize your POD to fit your scope, your observing site(s), and your personal life-style.
