Insulated Wall Panels + Bay Lining

Wall Insulation + Black Bay Lining:

SkyShed POD XL2 Includes - POD Dome, 3 Wall Panels, 2 POD Bays, 1 Door, Assembly Hardware, Assembly DVD.

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.

Plus POD Bay Lining Option Fifteen pounds of black polyethylene, melded to the Bay color of your choice. Adds even more strength, plus IR radiation protection to PODs installed in extreme high temp areas. Lowers temperatures inside Bay

Note - Darkens outer translucent color slightly in the light colored Bays -White, Lunar Gray, Cobalt Blue. Your Bays will be slightly darker than your non black lined adjacent panels if you choose a light color. With the Tan, the Grays, and Green, you'll see less difference in color tone.

Plus 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.

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.

Excellent Value September 21, 2014
Reviewer: Robert Bates from Belleville, ON Canada  
I've had my SkyShed Pod for 6 years.  It's a wonderful observatory for astrophotography.  Weathered the elements well.  Highly recommended.

POD has renewed my Astronomy Hobby August 19, 2014
Reviewer: Stephan Lalonde from Orleans, ON Canada  
After years of carefully dragging in and out all my expensive equipment, setting up and aligning, (not to mention tearing down and putting away) I would start to dread observing.  The only times I would observe is if I had a three day weekend WITH clear skies all three days AND I was not tired or busy with other chores.  That meant Very Few times!  The POD has changed all that.  Now I am observing within 5 minutes and shutdown is the same.  Whether I am tired, or only have an hour or so, I can go out and use my equipment more often, and as an added bonus, I don't wake up my wife at 3am when I am dragging in all my stuff.

Wayne, I thank you and my wife thanks you for this brilliant invention that serves its purpose so well!!

My best "astro" purchase August 18, 2014
Reviewer: Top of Mississippi Skies Observatory from Iuka, MS United States  
Have been involved in the hobby of astronomy for almost 10 years now, and of all of the related equipment I have purchased, my SkyShed POD has provided the most "bang for the buck."  It is exceptionally durable and is well designed.  My equipment is completely protected from the elements and it takes mere minutes to have it open and ready for observing or imaging.  

And I would be remiss if I didn't mention Wayne Parker.  It is seldom that you will see an owner (and designer, and distributor) so personally involved with support to the owners of his products, both as a community and as individuals.
