Introduction to the skyshed pod

 

 

USEFUL , PRACTICLE, AFFORDABLE, & QUALITY BUILT

 

There are many uses for the SkyShed POD, but first that comes to mind is the instant access for observing the night sky in comfort. Imagine having all your expensive, technological equipment all set up ready to go on hand at a moments notice. No reaching into the back shed or cupboard where you think you last saw your telescope, pulling it out setting it up, only to find the vision you were after has disappeared behind clouds.

 

The SkyShed POD is designed to be portable, or to be set up as a permant fixture in the back yard.

Why not invite the friends around for a viewing night, with access to the sky at a push of a button.

By using the same proven material that's been used globally for decades, in agricultural products and outdoor structures, combined with an evolutionary Patented design, SkyShed POD is the permanent or temporary observatory solution to house and operate the latest visual and photographic astronomical equipment.

MATERIAL

Stainless steel and rust resistant hardware used throughout.


COLOURS

BLACK LINED POD BAY

The lining is 100% virgin black polyethylene, heavily UV/IR resistant, and adds 15 lbs weight to the Bay. This makes the lined Bay even stronger than the unlined POD Bay.


ECOMATE INSULATED WALL PANELS

Tthe POD walls are filled with hardened foam insulation. Not only does this make the already strong walls incredibly strong, it cuts out IR waves, UV waves, and light.


PROTECTION

The Pods provide excellent dew and wind protection, uniquely tested at high wind speeds.


ROTATION

A full 360 Deg rotation of the dome provides access to the night sky in all directions without havoing to move. This both saves Valuable time & money, and views from one direction to another at the same time.
