Finally able to set up mount and fit the upper two shells of the observatory.

The flanges on each side butt together when fully slid closed but until I finish fabricating a 'U' shaped cover out of stainless steel that wraps around these two flanges to exclude the weather, it is still not ready.

Lower section now needs to have panels fitted too ... Watch this space ...

Hi Richard,

Your replica of the Apollo lunar module is really coming together. What size of 'scope will it accommodate?

Will you paint it green to make it blend in or are you more worried about the contents overheating?

Nice piece of work. What scope will live inside?
