This is the third observatory we have built since we purchased our first telescope in 1983. It is 12 ft × 16 ft (3.6 m × 5 m) with a roll-off roof. We decided to build the observatory ourselves due to money considerations — we had a new mortgage and had just ordered an Astrophysics 7 in (178 mm) f/9 refractor.
