The Exploradome Incarnation of Morning Star Observatory
Dismantling the Exploradome
Preparing to lift the dome over some shrubs on the way to the trailer. Thankfully lots of help showed up, including several guys from the local VFD.
Ever see the movie Caveman with Ringo Starr, Dennis Quaid and Shelly Long? The egg scene...
The dome was stored in a friend's barn until I was able to get it brought over to our new site nearly two years later. Because of the time and labor involved in operating two domes I will probably sell it rather than reuse it at the new site.
The dome for the new observatory will be the 12' metal Lancaster dome.
