Observatory on the move.....

Hello all,

Astromart has been and will continue to be a fantastic community for purchasing, sharing learning and meeting new friends. Some may have noticed my observatory for sale over the winter. Through the sale I again had the chance to meet another fine gentleman. I delivered the observatory to his location this past weekend. It was a very pleasing moment for both of us. He, with a new shelter for his mount and scopes and I, knowing that my work will be appreciated by another observer. Not to mention that it would not turn into a garden shed for my wife..............I'll build her a real potting shed grin .

Since I have no equipment on hand now I plan on taking a break from observing. We hope to build a new home in the future and I will build another observatory (of the same style). I should have a flock of interested grandchildren by that time smile

Hope you enjoy the photos!
