Skyshed POD XL-5
Yesterday, I began work building the new observatory, a Skyshed POD XL-5. It has been sitting in crates in my garage since November.
The POD is a think of beauty--superbly designed and tough as nails! This will be one durable building! Yesterday, with the help of my son, Scott, we got the dome segments built. Today, we will get the wheels put into the walls. Final assembly will take place on our selected site--about a mile and a half from my house.
