Explore Scientific Two-Room Pop-Up Go Observatory Tent
Protect Your Gear from Wind, Dew, Rain, and Dust
Most amateur astronomers and astrophotographers dream of having an observatory to keep dust, dew, and wind off of their telescope, and to help block glare from stray lights from entering their telescope optics.
But for many astronomers, as important as an observatory is for any telescope, an observatory is only a dream because of the expense of a roll-off roof building or a dome. Then there is the problem that an observatory building needs a permanent site that is suitable for an observatory.
Portable, Fast Set-Up, and Low-Cost
A great solution is a portable observatory tent. Compared to their permanent-structure cousins, a tent is extremely low-cost and can be set up almost anywhere where there is some flat space and a clear view of the sky.
However, setting up a portable observatory structure can also be a hassle on its own. No one wants to waste their valuable observing time on reading complex instructions while trying to figure out what pole goes where. This is why we utilized a sturdy pop-up design. Setting up the Explore Scientific Pop-Up Observatory Tent is literally only a matter of releasing the band so that the tent can “pop up” from its pack. You really don’t need to do anything else besides connect the two observatory rooms with a velcro seam and peg it to the ground. Thanks to this simple design, the Explore Scientific Two-Room Pop-Up Observatory sets up and tears down in only a couple of minutes, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy your weekend of astronomy.
