Pier Tech Tele-Station 2 Roll-Off Roof Observatory

 

Don't have the real estate to build a full size observatory? Need a structure to keep your astronomy equipment safe and protected from the elements, yet allow fast viewing access? If you answered "YES" to these questions, then we have the solution for you. Tele-Station Roll Off Roof Observatories...with features that leaves other available roll off roof designs in the dust.

Unlike other roll-off roof observatories, the Tele-Station can be totally disassembled and re-assembled in the event that you have to relocate it. It's asy installation... the walls and roof bolt together using one (1) tool, a supplied Allen wrench. The Pier Tech Tele-Station Observatory has a unique roof design. The aluminum roof comes in 5 sections, and has overlapping seams for a complete waterproof design. No permanent roller track supports here, Pier Tech observatories have extendable track supports that roll out with the roof making it more aesthetically pleasing. What's more, the Tele-Station can be operated as a fully remote observatory system with the PT2 or PT3 along with the Pier Tech Auto-Telestation Software from up to 200 feet away.

Step right inside... With the use of our patented height-adjustable pier, you can raise the telescope to view above the Tele-Station wall. This allows unobstructed views from the horizon to the zenith in all directions. Unlike a dome, the Tele-Station does not require complex motors and electronics to move the roof as the telescope follows the sky. The design permits an unobstructed view of the sky for naked eye observations and wide field piggyback astrophotography. And there's even more... The Tele-Station reaches thermal equilibrium faster than a dome, and does not create a chimney effect as hot air rises out the open slit of the dome.
