The backyard at my weekender has only a 6m depth , very tight
The Nexdome is a perfect fit without blocking off the whole yard
I can reuse my existing outdoor laptop workstation and drum stool as it will fit perfectly inside the bay unit of the dome ( photo of existing outdoor workstation
and rig less DSLR as I have my ZWO cooled OSC now , this photo is 6 months old )
Also my 8 newt and EQ6-R mount fit with room to spare , I can even upgrade later ( if I choose to do so ) to an EQ8-R mount and 10 f5 newt

I can choose between totally automating the dome remotely , semi automate it or manually control it with a push button control which is my preferred method
