Liberate your telescope. Get it out of storage and into a SkyShed!

We Get Letters! We regularly receive positive messages and testimonials from SkyShed owners. Here's a recent posting to our SkyShed Yahoo group that says it all...

I LOVE MY SKYSHED! Last night I got to use the SkyShed I built last summer in one of
the ways I hoped it would help me out: really cold nights where the sky is clear, but I can't bring myself to spend long hours in sub-freezing conditions.

So thanks to my SkyShed, I had to step outside for a only few minutes at dusk, roll the roof back, turn on the computer and the scope, and then head back into the house to control the telescope and camera for an evening of imaging from the warmth and comfort of my house.

* No spending 45 minutes setting up & aligning like I used to in the pre-SkyShed days.
* No spending time debugging everything that worked last time but doesn't work this time because I had to tear down the whole rig and move it in/out of the garage

* No spending half an hour taking down the setup at the end of the evening
* No frustration and lost evenings due to sudden increases in wind
causing too much imaging system shake.
* No frostbite

In the nicer weather, I like to be outside looking at the sky while the imaging rig does it's thing, but in the past on nights like last night (near zero degrees F), I wouldn't even bother trying to image because the cold was just more than my aging frame was willing to put up with.

So thank you SkyShed for making last night possible, enjoyable, and safe! :-)
