For over a decade we have built, had a hand in building, and consulted, on thousands of SkyShed Roll Off and SkyShed POD 8‘ observatories. We are in a unique position to integrate your observatory with you "from the ground up".
As we have been developing POD MAX, we have been teaming up with most of the best names in the astro manufacturing business to provide complete, almost one-stop-shopping for integrated systems.
By integration we mean the bringing together of MAX, pier, mount, scopes, cameras, wheels, power distribution/system heating, software, and more. Expert assistance with top astronomers experienced in the set up of those products, with on site/remote help.
The sky’s the limit, if you're budget is large enough we’ll even come and do the whole set up for you/with you for days. Train you on software, Polar align, calibrate. You name it.
We have a gallery of experts who can help. On standby. We'll go just about anywhere on the planet.
Complete, multiple, system consultations. What is best for your needs. Not just what looks best in the magazines. We have the inside track on the industry. We know who's up, who's down, who's good, who's not so good. And who's really bad. We've only partnered with the best in products and service.
From the best names in the business, including Kendrick Astro, Celestron, Planewave, Hercules, Astro Tech, Astro Physics, Software Bisque, SBIG, ATIK, Mallicam, Lunt, iOptron, Starry Night, Tele Vue, Moonlite, various top name software.
