It is a heavy duty piece of hardware with a diameter of 12'6", perfect for holding a relatively large scale astronomy setup. The dome has a motorized azimuth axis for movement and automation purposes, along with a matching motorized lower and upper shutter. These motorized portions of the dome are perfect for automation and remote control of your observatory, allowing you to open and close the shutter remotely. The dome's exterior is available in an immensely broad range of colors. For details on what colors are available, please contact OPT at 800-483-6287.
A dome is an essential component of your ideal personal observatory, and with the Pier Tech PTD 12'6" you will have one of the finer possible options for that component. When used in conjunction with compatible software the dome can be fully controlled by computer, allowing remote astro-imaging from the leisure of your living room. The dome itself is highly durable and dependable, being constructed from an aluminum sub frame and a Galvalume skin with interlocking dome sheets, the strongly interwoven design providing a watertight and weather resistant dome to shield your astronomy equipment from the elements.
