Unlike half-dome designs, NexDome is a classic observatory dome with more than 100 degrees of shutter opening, allowing you to point your telescope to the zenith while 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 1400mm long.
The NexDome’s light weight makes motorizing the dome easier.
Thanks to patented design, there is no need of any caulking or weather stripping at the joints
LOW FLAT SHIPPING
Nexdome was designed to ship within the limits of standard courier sizes and weights, reducing shipping costs of your purchase and when relocating the dome. Shipping in North America starts as little as $240
Thanks to the advanced design and low weight of NexDome, the observatory can be assembled in just a few hours. No special skills are required to assemble the modular NexDome.
1 YEAR WARRANTY
NexDome products are warranted against material or manufacturing defects in ABS parts for 1 year from date of original purchase.
Nexdome’s unique dome wheels are installed at two different angles. An upright set of wheels bears the weight of the dome and provides for rotation, while a second set of wheels keeps the dome from shifting, resulting in smoother rotation. The second set of wheels, in conjunction with the dome’s angle lip, provides critical protection from uplift in high winds.
NexDome offers open source dome and shutter full automation and remote control
