This 10x8 shed will become the home for everything that does not need to be out under the stars at night.  All my adapters, extra equipment, boxes, cases etc. will move into this new shed that I will build under the roll-off structure. This new shed will be insulated and will allow for more space in the observatory and less exposure to moisture for a lot of things.  It will also have automated snow removal for the roof!
