It looks like the shutter lifts off and is stored on the ground when the dome is in use. So it doesn't slide back or anything.
I'm guessing that's weatherstripping we see there at the edge of the slit.
Know how much it cost?
Hi, this is Gordie. Steve told me about this site and that he posted some photos here so I decided to join and help answer questions.
The top part of the shutter slides back on wheels attached to the back of the dome. The bottom piece is removable. I have to get some silicone spray to put on the weatherstripping. When I slide it back it sticks a little until it gets on the wheels. The entire project was under $800 including running power from my house and the pier which was hand made from an old metal light pole. A friend of mine came up with the idea and did the welding for me.
