Massapoag Pond Observatory I recently got into astronomy and soon figured out I would need a observatory to continue this hobby, yes I live in a cold and windy area in New England! I poked around to see what was available for a low cost dome…. wow this is going to be a expensive hobby! Then came the Explora-Dome from PolyDome the quality and workmanship is great for the price! I received my dome on July 7th and broke ground on July 23th. I have also designed and built a fully automatic rotational control system for the Explora-Dome (Macintosh based). Here are a few pictures of the completed observatory… inside and outside… more photo’s can be found here Thanks to the great folks at PolyDome for making this low cost dome possible!
