From the Back Cover
A permanent building for any small astronomical telescope is a great asset. Comfort, ease of use and above all being able to spend time actually observing instead of setting up the telescope mean that most amateur astronomers dream of having a fixed site.
The second collection of- mostly amateur- observatories for small telescopes provides yet more ideas along with a wealth of practical information for anyone thinking of building an observatory.

Most observatories are going to be of simple construction. If you can drive a nail and cut a piece of wood, you are well on your way. A bit of cement work and you are 99% there. I used information from 4 units to design my own. Yes, some of the designs are on the internet and he gives web addresses where they exists.
It meets my needs for information and I would not hesitate to suggest this book to anyone thinking about building a small observatory.
