The trials, tribulations and small triumphs of an Indiana astronomer.

The observatory will be a converted Arrow Highpoint 10' x 12' shed. The shed will be converted to a run-off. I am much indebted to those who have gone before me and converted this excellent building into an observatory. The plan involves making a wooden frame to top the walls, an identical frame on which to build the roof, and yet a third frame to stand on "legs" behind the building to roll the roof onto.
I will post images and movies as the building gets underway...wish me luck!
