Details

SkyShed POD XL5 Includes - POD Dome, 4 POD Bays, 1 Door, Assembly Hardware, Assembly DVD.

Options to choose from when checking out -

Please choose your dome and wall colors, insulation and lining options, or your glow color options, and your shipping State or Province.

You can add extra POD Bays or wall panels "a la carte" in the Extras area. It costs much less to ship extra Bays and wall panels when you add them to your original POD shipment.

 
POD Bay Lining Fifteen pounds of black polyethylene, melded to the Bay color of your choice. Adds even more strength, plus IR radiation protection to PODs installed in extreme high temp areas. Lowers temperatures inside Bay.  

Note - Darkens outer translucent color slightly in the light colored Bays -White, Blue, Ice Green. Your Bays will be slightly darker than your non black lined adjacent panels if you choose a light color. With the Tan, the Grays, and Green, you'll see less difference in color tone.

 Plus Ecomate Insulated Wall Panels Hardened Ecomate Spray Foam Insulation, adds incredible strength to the already strong wall panels. It blocks Infra Red radiation, UV radiation, and keeps the interior much cooler in extremely hot outside temps. Will help keep heat inside in winter too. 

The insulation option is designed for high heat environments
, but the added strength makes it a great option for any environment.

Please Note If you're choosing wall insulation, you cannot choose Discovery White as your wall color. The insulation darkens over time and will make your walls look brown.

Bonus Items DeepSky 2011 Software, SkyNews Subscription, SkyShed Pier Plans and over 40 Freeware and Trialware software programs on CD, Official POD Cap.



 

Product Series

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

 

Unlike competing products, POD is not a D.I.Y. project and is ready to go right out of the box. With just a few basic hand tools, you can have a fully functioning observatory up and operating within a short time of POD arriving at your front door. How much is your time worth to you" Don't forget to take your labor time into consideration when determining total project cost. If you plan on adding a few POD Bays later, consider doing so at the time of your initial purchase instead. This way you will not only save money on individual Bay purchases, but especially on Bay shipping costs. If added at time of purchase Bays only cost an extra $50.00 each to ship. Purchased later the shipping cost will be at least twice as much. POD Bays can be shipped 3 in a box, therefore you save a pile on shipping 3 Bays at once compared to shipping one at a time. Shipping one Bay later will cost almost as much as shipping three later. The same applies for extra wall panels. POD comes with a one year factory warranty.
