NexDome is the next-generation observatory that was designed with paying attention to problems and shortcomings of similar class observatories.

To name a few:

  • the overall price due to shipping cost,
  • the cost of accessories to overcome faulty design or make.

We achieved our main goal which was a well-priced, strong, inexpensive to ship, easily assembled, and professional-looking observatory by developing a modular design which addresses all our criteria. Also, the other main advantage of this patented design is after-sale support. The biggest support problem common observatories are the lack of possibility of returning the defective dome or walls hence the cost of shipping back can be more than the cost of the observatory itself and meanwhile, you don’t have any protection for your telescope and expensive gears. With NexDome IF you manage to break a part or section, we will send you only that part without any hassle and you still have your observatory running. No repair!

Highlights – Dome Only (no ring)

This option for those who wish to put NexDome on 8′ walls. This option does not include the wheels and ring.

• The 2,2 m. DOME ONLY model sits and rotates perfectly on SkyShed walls. There is no need for NexDome ring since the SkyShed walls have wheels on them already.

• NexDome is a classic observatory dome with more than 100 degrees of shutter opening, allowing you to point your telescope to the zenith while the remaining shielded from stray light and wind.

• The 2,2 meter inside diameter provides plenty of space to operate up to a 14” Schmidt Cass or a refractor 1400 mm. long.

• Shipping costs are reduced due to the nesting of parts, and thus smaller shipping packages.

• The NexDome’s lightweight makes motorizing the dome easier.

• Structure and enclosure materials are combined, resulting in fewer parts.

Assembly is simple and easy.
