Canadian Telescopes introduces the NexDome Observatory (starting at $1,795 for the dome only). This 2.2-meter (8-foot) dome is manufactured from multiple layers of impact-resistant ABS material that retains its shape under a wide range of temperatures. An additional, outer layer of Solarkote protects the structure from ultraviolet deterioration. The NexDome rides on two sets of wheels that prevent shifting and ensure smooth rotation while securing the dome during high winds. Its modular design allows a single person to assemble the dome in just a few hours with common household tools. See the manufacturer’s website for additional options.
