Observing location

Finally upgraded my old, cramped wooden roll-off observatory with a new larger metal shed. The roof utilises electric gate rolling gear and can be opened with just your little finger, unlike the old observatory roof which was becoming harder and harder to move. Shown here housing my trusty Skywatcher Explorer 150P.

I now plan to fully automate the observatory, including the roll-off roof.
