Insulated Wall Panels + Heavier Bay

Wall Insulation + Heavier Bay:

SkyShed POD XL1 Includes - POD Dome, 4 Wall Panels, 1 POD Bay, 1 Door, Assembly Hardware, Assembly USB.

Options to choose from when checking out -

Please choose your dome and wall colors, insulation and lining option, and your shipping State or Province.

You can add extra POD Bays or wall panels "a la carte" in the Extras area. It costs much less to ship extra Bays and wall panels when you add them to your original POD shipment.

Ecomate Insulated Wall Panels Option 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. In addition, since we can't insulate the POD Bay, we add 15 lbs of more HDPE to create a "Heavy" Bay at 50 lbs when you choose the Insulation and Heavier Bay option. This makes the already strong Bay even stronger, helps keep IR waves out, and aids in cooling in hot temps.

Please Note If you're choosing wall insulation, you cannot choose Discovery White as your wall color. The insulation darkens over time and will make your walls look brown.

5 of 5 POD XL1 September 22, 2014
Reviewer: Richard Huber from Florence, KY United States  
Going into my second year of owning my POD - My first question is why did I wait so long?? My retirement dream always was to have a permanent observatory and Wayne provided me with the fulfillment of that dream by producing the POD - This is the greatest addition to any amateur's inventory. It is an investment and not an expense item. More eyepiece time, equipment always ready - Perfect..

Reviewer: David Vanderbilt from Paw Paw, IL USA & Rodeo, NM  
This POD was heaven sent, a terrific asset in my longing for an effective yet inexpensive domed observatory that meets my every need. I followed the online assembly video and all turned out perfectly. Thanks Wayne and all for conceiving the idea and fullfilling my dream.

This is a great product! The design is very well thought out, the components and hardware are high quality, and the assembly process is very easy (the included DVD was a huge help).
