Default GEODESIC DOME OBSERVATORY

http://www.orednet.org/~jgarlitz/geodome.htm

Been doing some searching for something not even remotely
resembling this. But, figured I'd pass it along - it does use some
wood. If nothing else, Luigi can make one for an ice fishing shanty, or
something. LOL

I had run across those same plans some time back when I was researching
plans on geodesic homes. I am planning on building the wife and I a new
house in 5-10 years, and have decided to go geodesic, and was planning
on using that at the top for the wife's star watching (she has a pretty
nice telescope, but was planning on building her a nice 8" or 10"
newtonion in her on dome).

Go with the ten inch. There's no substitute for aperture.

I knew some wag would interject with a comment along those lines...
As long as it fills the aperture, however, size doesn't matter. :-\

Best place for getting the length of struts for 3, 4, 5 and 6 freq
domes. I've transfered that info to a spreadsheet so I can do fast
calculations and have it converted to feet inches and 64ths.

Oh, silly Canuckistani person, why do you fish for ice?

Cool. That looks like an interesting way to make a glueup, assembly,
and finish/paint shack. Hmmm...

Could probably assemble with cable ties through holes for temporary
use, too...
