A friend of mine down Warwick way said his neighbour had a proper astro dome,that's looks like its available for around $100 odd dollars
contact details see link
Might suit some of the Leyburn chaps,sounds like it was not a huge one.
Hope this finds an astronomer,the owner was telling my friend he was going to make a kids cubby out of it!

Did anyone follow up with this? I'm just curious from a sticky beak's perspective... ;)

I rang and left a message but no reply as yet.

I was almightily tempted last night, but realised that without motorising the dome I'd spend the whole night nudging it rather than napping away in the car :D
Peter, I hope you managed to figure out your LX200 cable problem?

As soon as I got home I tested both cables with a multimeter. The one I got off Pat had a broken connection and the one I got from Scope Stuff (same as the one I have in the obs at home) is wired correctly but will not communicate with either scope, weird.
Nice to meet you on the weekend.

Think Fahim (netwolf) is following it up,and is keen to look into it further.I have not had any contact with my friend,but think is trying to get more details and images.
