Building a Roll-off Roof Observatory free pdf Almost every amateur astronomer who has taken the pursuit to its second level aspires to a fixed, permanent housing for his telescope, permitting its rapid and comfortable use avoiding hours of setting-up time for each observing session.

The chapters outline step-by-step construction of a typical building.

A professionally designed roll-off observatory could cost as much as $3000 just for the plans - which are provided free with Building a Roll-off Roof Observatory.
