Astro Haven 7ft Dome- E-Relay, 115V-1PH, Nord/ABB 0.25/0.5, Color
Astro-Haven has produced a splendid quality 7' tall clamshell fiberglass dome that is ideal for amateur astronomers looking to invest in a proper observatory setup. The benefits of the Clamshell design used are easy to see; it's simplicity reduces the upkeep cost compared to more complicated and unwieldy dome designs as well as simplifying the process of using the dome. It is capable of being fully open, whether simply to let you take in the entire night sky more easily, or to achieve temperature equilibrium in a hurry. Both Manual and button press operation are possible, depending on your personal preferences as an astronomer. Ingress/egress is over the side or from below when mounted on top of a structure. Boat stairs, or custom made stairs may be used for installations on the ground but people are installing these domes on top of almost any kind of building from Play houses to silos. In either case the installation is a snap. Just bolt the lower flange of the dome to a concrete pad or a structure that is isolated from your telescope pier. The latest 3-D design and CAD tools are used to engineer the best design and assure the utmost quality. Although white gel coat exterior achieves the best UV protection, domes are frequently ordered in a variety of colors. Black is the standard interior color.
