Just some quick notes on my observatory.  It's called a 'Roll of Roof' design. This means that the roof is detached from the rest of the structure and can be rolled onto rails, revealing the equipment inside.

The Telescope sits inside firmly attached to a concrete pier. The floor of the observatory is independent of the pier. This means that all the walking and stomping around in the building won't cause the pier to shake and either ruin photographs I'm taking or shake what is being seen in the eyepiece.  Enjoy the pictures!
