    Good thread. Some excellent points made.

    I have noticed the Doctor did not mention security issues as being a downside with external observatories. These days having something that stands out from the norm seems to attract unwanted attention.
    Cheers

    I Roll out of my garage on wheelie bars which then bolt into the driveway. Observatory isn't in the cards here.
