Is sky shed still operating? I've tried to purchase plans from them for the rolloff roof observatory and have never gotten a reponse from them! I paid for the plans on cd through PayPal and got the payment acknowledgement but never got a acknowledgement on the order for skyshed. I've tried emailing them, again with no response ?
Is there anyplace else that sells the plans ?

EAre they the same as Skyshed POD? 

Did you try contacting some of the  dealers?

If you only recently contacted them, it’s possible they might be at a star party considering it’s new Moon weekend. ???

I was looking for the same thing but could not find SkyShed anywhere. I was in Barns&Noble book store here in Mass and I did find what I was looking for, Not SkyShed but the book I found had many different types of sheds. Started to build a 16' x 24' roll off but changed my mind mid build. I thought too big for now. Went with a 8'x 10' roll off. The book is call Building a roll-off roof or dome Observatory. complete guide for design and construction, 2nd edition, The Patrick Moore practical Astronomy series, by John Stephen hicks. Has a lot of great ideas from large to small sheds. Shows everything from pouring the floor to setting the pier and every configuration you could come up with. I will be picking up the Sky Pod soon. Good amount of room with those cubby sections very low maintenance and a hell of a lot easier to put together. I  hope this might be of some help to you. As Astrophotographers we need to help each other with things like this so we don't pull our hair out trying to put this stuff together. Eric
