I am about to assemble my NexDome and setup my observatory. I have a 14” Meade GPS on a custom pedestal. My guestion is: Getting the scope into the dome and onto the wedge I think is going to be a bear. My thoughts are to build the dome around the pedestal with the scope already on it. Any comments on this? That scope is BIG and I think that lifting it through the slot is going to present more problems than lifting the dome over the scope.
Planning the install to have as few few problems as possible.
