Now that I put the scope up today I ecpect to have cloudy skies for the next 30 day.

A few pics of the inside and one of the outside
My measurements were close, but could have gotten closer to the roof. As you can see there is about 1 1/2" clearance when the roof rolls off.
There is a 11' x 10' platform around the peir. Making the peir 44" above the ground, and the platform is 24" above the concrete floor. The peir is 10" steel pipe 3/4" thick. Filled with 450 lbs of sand.
