A severe storm destroyed our much loved, hand built dome at the end of 2012

Fisheye view of the interior & Intes.

Lots of activity. Despite looking like Blackpool illuminations,
in reality there was barely enough light anywhere to focus this shot!

Showing our new dome and part of the grounds.

1st light for our new observatory.

The moon rises behind our new dome.

The dome, in place & mainly paneled, seen by lightning.

Paneling the frame by moonlight!

The frame mounted on the main wall uprights and 'rotational undercarriage'

Early Days. The dome frame and centre pier.
