It looks like my most wonderful of wives may grant me my wish for my upcoming 50th birthday and allow me to get/build a backyard observatory. While I'm leaning towards an Explora-dome mounted on their 10' x 10' square building, I am also considering building a SkyShed. What I would very much appreciate hearing from you is why you choose the ED? What factors influenced your decision?
Among the reasons I'm leaning toward the ED is the better protection from wind and local light pollution - both of which are plentiful in my backyard. It also looks really cool!!
Anyway, I would really appreciate hearing your thoughts.
