We are excited to introduce this range of affordable roll off roof observatories made in the UK.
The Roll Off Roof Observatory provides a secure and permanent home for your telescope. They are ideal for both visual observers and astro imagers.
From March 2014 we have moved production of these observatories to Tanalised Log Lap Wood. This is stronger and longer lasting than the Tongued and Grooved panels used previously and by our competitors. It provides better protection.
The roofs are felted - felt has an expected lifespan of around 5 years and is easily replaceable.
Internally the observatories feature lined internal walls with a breathable water proof membrane.
All the Observatories have 1 x 60cm drop down sides to the left and right on standard units.
The location of the door and roof opening is at the customers choice.
Each unit is supplied with 4 inch by 2 inch main posts and frame work for the opening roof.
The roof wheels are 120mm heavy duty with high quality bearings This gives very smooth and quiet operation and the roof is easily opened with one hand.
All openings and roof have latches for security.
An electric opening roof option is available.an ASCOM based interface is additionally available for robotic operation.
Each Observatory is offered with an optional warm room - the sizes are configurable.
Typical delivery times are 3 to 4 weeks from time of order.
We can also make bespoke sizes upon request.
An option is to Ply Line - please contact us for a quotation.
Delivery cost is as follows
Based on our manufacturing Unit at S80 2SX
Round trip charged at £1 per mile from S80 2SX
Installation cost is £500 for standard observatory installations
This may rise for the larger observatories or where options such as Ply Lining or robotic roof operation are chosen and also if the distance is such that it requires an over night stay.
Full pricing and details will be given at time of quotation.
