Options to choose from when checking out -

Ecomate Insulated Wall Panels. Hardened Ecomate Spray Foam Insulation, adds incredible strength to the already strong wall panels. It blocks Infra Red radiation, UV radiation, and keeps the interior much cooler in extremely hot outside temps. Will help keep heat inside in winter too.

The insulation option is designed for high heat environments
, but the added strength makes it a great option for any environment. $60 extra per panel sold as a set.

Please Note About Discovery White and Insulation. If you're choosing Discovery White, consider Lunar Gray (which is light gray) or any other color if you want insulation. Insulation cannot be added to Discovery White.

maintenance free and increases your viewing time September 21, 2014
Reviewer: Vince C from Toronto, ON Canada  
I've had my POD for over 6 years.  The only "maintenance" that I do is to give it a wash once a year.  Still looks like new, and leak free.

Best thing about having a POD is that if you only have 15 minutes to do some observing, its not a problem.  Only takes a few minutes to be out and looking out the eye piece! Best investment I've made to vastly increase my viewing time.

From The Sullivan Observatory…My Home POD September 20, 2014
Reviewer: Michael Sullivan from Tucson, AZ United States  
On November 10, 2007, my wife gave me the go ahead to purchase the ultimate accessory for any astronomer, a Personal Home Observatory…or POD! The key to this purchase of course was the amazingly low price which in no way reflected the quality. Living in Tucson, my initial concern was about the intense heat deforming the material it was made of. However, almost seven years later it's as good as the day it arrived. It's amazing how it opened up the door to astrophotography for me  since I now have this permanent setup. When you are sitting in the observatory you are overwhelmed with how fortunate you are to have this unique setting that makes every one of your friends say "how cool is that!" Thank you Wayne for your obsession to make one very cool Personal Observatory Dome (POD)!

POD in FRANCE September 20, 2014
Reviewer: Escobedo Felix from Montberon in FRANCE  
After four years I am very happy of my purchasse. The POD is in the same state, no change of color, no problem with water.
My only problem is the difficulty of obtaining an extension of an additional bay will aving no distributor in FRANCE.
(And no answer by ALTAIR...)
In conclusion I recommend this purchasse.
The POD is fantastic!!!

My POD is over 3 1/2 years old August 10, 2014
Reviewer: Carol Sabo from San Tan Valley, AZ United States  
I've had my POD for more than 3 1/2 years now, and I can't imagine being without it!  The material it's made of holds its strength, and looks as good today as it did on the day it arrived.  It was very easy to assemble as well.

The POD has proven to be solid, and protects my gear from even the most ferocious monsoon storms here in the Arizona desert. Support from the company is the "Gold Standard" of service.

I also have the visor, and in my opinion, a "must have" accessory if your in neighborhood situation. It blocks neighbors lights and also keeps me warmer while observing in the Winter. It's very easy to swing it down into action, and when not needed...just flip it up out of the way.

I highly recomend this wonderful product to anyone considering an observatory option.  It's been a perect choice for me.

RoscoeSkies POD August 6, 2014
Reviewer: Dennis Roscoe from Waukesha, WI United States  
The POD continues to be an excellent observatory and well suited for my remote operation.  The quality of workmanship is outstanding and the assembly was a dream.  I assembled the dome the first day and then by the end of the second day the POD was fully operational.  The only negative is about 10% of my imaging time is limited as I approach the zenith. The PZT is not a solution in my area because of the amount of snow fall.  The PZT shelf would continually be filled with ice and snow.  I am still investigating a solution to this problem.  Other than the zenith issue, I am extremely happy with the POD solution and would highly recommend it.
