Hi Paul

I built an observatory using a Sirius 2.4 metre dome 12 years ago using colour bond, timber and the dome.

Unless you need to see the horizon it is not necessary to have the telescope go below 25 degrees. This makes it much easier to handle however placing a 12" SCT on a wedge 2 metres above the ground will present some challenges.

I will attach a zip file of my observatory where you can look at a scaled arrangement of the components.
