BEST ACCESSORY SO FAR
« on: March 07, 2016, 10:20:27 AM »
Hi all,  I have recently taken delivery and installation of a 2.2 metre observatory which is supplied by Homeobserv Ltd Dungannon N. Ireland. This is the Orbsey Evo 4 Black & White. The dome is made in one piece (no leaks) and rotates on a BNC ballrace in a stainless steel track smooth operation and like the shutter can be automated. The delivery time took 5 weeks including Xmas week and the installation took 4 hours. The suppliers were very helpful and I am delighted with the Orbsey.
I have attatched some pics. Hope you find them interesting..............regards Dave
