You will see from the picture below, last August I polished my Pulsar dome. I do this every summer, but it soon fades. So this year I have used a colour restoring product called Polytrol. I am pretty pleased with the result.

It blends in very well with the garden and trees Jeremy

Strangely enough, when I applied for planning permission, they stipulated it must be green and not white (I live in a conservation zone so all constructions, not matter how small, need planning consent).

My observatory dome is white. I haven't washed it for a couple of years and its now green, nearly the same colour as yours but not so shiny.

Maybe your green dome blends in better than when it was white, Peter.

BTW, a word of caution on the use of Polytrol. Apparently it can be used on any colour apart from white!
