Amateur Observatory Tours by Video

I ran across this video that a guy made about his Dad's observatory, and I thought what a great idea for sharing how people build and use their observatories. There are many professional observatories documented on the internet, but not so many amateur walk throughs. There is plenty of info here for potential observatory builders, but also importantly, you get some idea of how we personalise our observatory, which we all do. Who doesn't want to stick their head inside an observatory? So without further intro, here is the first video:

If you have a video of your observatory, or know of others posted on Utube, please link them here in this thread and we can build an amateur observatory tour.

Hmmmm yes I just happened to see this video a couple of hours before a certain friend gave me a heads up on a good value roll off roof observatory within striking distance from here at Tenterfield..you know the one that is now sitting outside...and got me thinking seriously about an eq8 and a 16 inch...yes very nice to see what's out there Glen.
And I can't thank you enough.
