The exterior of the new Micro-observatory is complete! Just need to finish off the electronics and mount the door and the observatory will be fully done, and the fine-tuning the software and hardware can proceed. I have everything but the roof open/close already tested so it should be quick to hook up the motor to the board, install the limit switches, and test out the open/close functions.

Above is an animation of the whole build from August – October! Below is the final building.
