Its finally here!!!!

She has arrived, Starry Night Observatory.

IceInSpace's loved member jjjnettie has donated her old observatory to a good home.

With much bartering and millions of emails later I finally got it transported from Kilcoy to Hattonvale.. a 1.5hour trip that took nerly 2.5 hours on the day.

It was transported by Warren from Zenith Transport. He was legendary!, we had to balance it on its roof to be under size, it took forever but was worth it in the end. I highly recommend Warren, he was very professional yet a nice easy going bloke. His rates were very decent as well.

Now starts the work, this old observatory has seen its fair share of weather but with a bit of work, in a year or so it will be as good as new.

Stay tuned as I will post updates as I go.. when complete, some members, make sure you have an empty belly because I will officially "open" it with a bbq and campout.

attached are some pics.

Again many thanks to jjjnettie and Warren from Zenith.
