My weekend project...built a dormer on the garage for my scope. Has a flip roof. Inside is a temporary platform, to be followed by a more vibration-free pier / platform combo.

Wow! This modification is well beyond highly cool!

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.

Nice job! 8)

I'd love to build an observatory on my garage roof. I could disguise it as a pigeon coupe. grin

Are the skies in Jackson Heights darker than in Maspeth? wink
