This is the pre-dome view with the sliding roof.

This is the pre-dome view with the sliding roof.

Full operational view of the Meade and Orion 80ED scope piggybacked on top. The main imaging camera is the Canon 350D which is on the back of the Orion refractor. The Meade DSI which has a f/3.3 reducer on it (not seen) is on the 12" Meade and is autoguiding when this photo was taken.
The red light is provided by a couple of those red "rope" lights around the floor along the walls. Although, light pollution in the neighborhood is bad already, maybe the red lights don't do much!
