My Explora-dome was purchased in September 2008 at the Minnesota State fair to house my Meade 10 LX 200R. Pictured is the Polydome display at the state fair (top). Transporting home on a 16ft car trailer. Stopping by another dome (bottom left). Initial installation on decking. Also pictured is a view of the observatory and telescope with the bay extension and a view from inside the dome. The observatory has been named the SWOOP Observatory (Small Window Of Opportunity) due to the tree coverage in my yard leaving me a small slice of the sky in which I can observe.
