The ScopeDome 3m Observatory is designed for home backyard observatories to professional level remote use. The observatory provides a large internal space that allows the user free movement around their equipment. The dome can accommodate telescope apertures up to 50cm and long refractors up to 200cm in length [including a full equipment chain: rotator, focuser, camera, etc].

Innovative 3M ScopeDome observatory features include:

  • Full height door in the dome side panel to provide access at any rotation and when shutter is open, so you can enter during a session
  • Shutter and dome drive system providing smooth and quiet operation
    Shutter power system allows the opening and closing of the shutter at any rotation [not requiring to be parked to close]
  • Shutter controller is wireless, so no umbilical cord to worry about, leaving a clean and free floor area
  • Plug and Play wiring system adapted to this dome – so you can be up and running quickly
  • Internal and an external temperature probe [one mounted on shutter gear box, the other inside the shutter control box enclosure]
  • Humidity sensor, so you can monitor your domes moisture level
  • Wide viewing aperture allows for large telescope observation
  • Both dome design and comprehensive instructions provide for an easy and fast installation
  • Beautiful aesthetics and finish not only result in an appealing look, but also a device specifically designed to protect your observational equipment from the most extreme elements
  • No flaps that protrude beyond the circumference of the dome.
  • High standards of materials, construction and workmanship, that will meet and surpass competing brand’s challenges
  • All our domes are initially assembled and tested at the factory, then dismantled and carefully prepared for transportation.
  • The 3m dome is of a size that typically does not require building permits (but please check this for location and situation – this is your responsibility).

The 3M dome package consists of:

  • ScopeDome 3m V3 Dome
  • Door in side panel for easy access
  • Shutter motor: Yes [No encoder]

    When I was planning and designing Australia’s highest observatory, on top of the Tinderry Mountains in NSW and deciding on the best enclosure to house and protect my telescope, mount and imaging gear, exposed to the elements at 1450m above sea level, a 3m Scopedome was the obvious choice to me. Diego, Paul and Bill at Sidereal Trading were great to deal with and the dome was delivered in a timely fashion and when I was ready, the installation team arrived from Sidereal Trading, worked like clockwork and installed it, with no fuss in a little over a day. The final product looks beautiful and does what it was designed to do very well. Very Happy!
