Observatory

Observatory Build

This is my 1st observatory in my back garden. It took about 3 months to complete. I decided to amend a standard Pent Shed design, but have it shiplapped sides,top and bottom and also have it 1 foot higher than a standard shed.

Astronomy Equipment

Bresser Messier N130

This was my first telescope. The Bresser Messier 130N Newtonian. A brilliant first scope and a stable MON1 mount. I also added an RA motor drive, and I used it nearly every clear night for about 3-4 months before upgrading.

Skywatcher 120 DS Pro

This was a great scope, cost around £1,000. Another telescope I did not have for that long, as I decided to upgrade to triplets, as this was a doublet.

Skywatcher Equinox 66mm

Skywatcher Equinox 66mm. A very well made telescope, another telescope I did not use much, but one I thought I would have used a lot for widefield imaging. I just did not like having an SCT end to the focuser.
