The POD has landed!
Last weekend, we made huge progress on the Skyshed POD. We finally got the POD on site, installed, and anchored. Here are the pix:

Ready for the Scope!
The site is not perfect, but it is much better than my home site, which is surrounded by tall trees; the eastern and southern horizons provide good visibility. The POD cover works very well. We had 2 days of hard, wind-driven rain after installation and the POD interior remained completely dry.
