Title: Build your own observatory(A.S.I.G.N. Observatory)
Post by: bloodhound31 on April 02, 2007, 04:37:03 PM
G'day there from Australia!

I have been building my own observatory at home for a little over 12 months now. It is complete and operational and taking photos now.
To help others who are contemplating doing a similar thing, I have built a website, photographing and documenting step-by-step, all the way. There are lots of construction photos and instructiond to draw ideas from and have a go at it yourself!

Its all free information, so please, have a look, enjoy and have some fun with building your own observatory!

You  can do a search for A.S.I.G.N. Observatory to find it, or look here http://www.aussiepeople.com.au/asignobservatory/

Kind regards and God bless you,

Barry.

Hi Barry..wow that is very impressive! I always wanted a small observatory in my back garden..not sure I have the space for something this size..but I'll take a look at your webpages all the same. Would be especially welcome on those clear but  bitterly cold winter nights in the UK!

well done..
