Hi from Canberra!<br />I have recently had a lot of fun building a home made DIY observatory and a website to share the experience with anyone thinking of doing the same. So please, read and enjoy! Lots of construction pictures and advice to peruse.<br /><br />Cheers! Barry from Canberra.<br /><br />http://members.iinet.net.au/~armstead<br /><br />or google search "barry's home made observatory."<br />

Well, I got the steel bent up and I've been head down, bum up all day. I'm feeling sore now.<br /><br />Got my fibreglass too! I'll have to get the old man around tomorrow with the backhoe, so I can take the dome off, place it on the new ring and fibreglass the lot!!<br /><br />Soooo excited!!!!<br /><br />Baz<br /><br />http://members.iinet.net.au/~a rmst...ort%20ring.htm

Things you need inside: An armchair. Snacks. Beer. Internet connection. I like the carpet, by the way.<br /><br />Oh and another thing: a note to your family about where you are <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" /> I would live there. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p> </p><p> </p><p><span style="color:#ff9900" class="Apple-style-span">-pyoko</span> <span style="color:#333333" class="Apple-style-span">the</span> <span style="color:#339966" class="Apple-style-span">duck </span></p><p><span style="color:#339966" class="Apple-style-span"><span style="color:#808080;font-style:italic" class="Apple-style-span">It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.</span></span></p> </div>
