New Expedition - Observatory

After going back and forth on the idea of hosting my astronomy whole unit, myself have finally decided, for a number of reasons back in the Gibraltar, building a new      observatory, in Spain. After a few attends in different sites, I decided to build it in the mountain of Istan, Southern Spain

The observatory would be an off the shelf fully automated observatory. I am not an all technical geek, but  have knowledge about astrophysics and craftsmanship.

History of My Dome

I  always wanted to build an observatory. In fact without believing  in the project I would have never have started or finished. I decided on the Pulsar Dome given that it provided all in one solution have, previously I made a self roof-off  observatory from a shed, but it would not work due amount of condensation. The rough time line of the construction of the IMT observatories are as follows:
