SkyShed POD   HOME INDEX BACK NEXT
 

I bought this semi-portable observatory called a POD (Personal Observatory Dome) from SkyShed. It was quick and fairly easy to assemble, and if necessary it can be completely disassembled in just a few hours. The dome is about 8 feet in diameter, and the walls are about 4 feet high.

Soon after installation, I added a PZT (Pod Zenith Table) to allow me to aim the telescope toward the zenith and in all sky directions without limitation. This added platform is shown in the next few pictures.
