Are you are bothered at your observing site by streetlights, passing car headlights, or your neighbor’s outside lighting? This ad may the solution to your problem. I have a portable light blocking system for sale. I purchased the system new last year from Dark Sky, Inc. The system includes 10 individual panels comprised of an interlocking PVC framework supporting light and wind resistant black cloth. The cloth is securely attached to the PVC with screws. Each panel consists of 3 individual pieces that together form a single piece that is 48” wide and 84” tall. The largest of the 3 pieces can be partially disassembled and doubled over for easy storage and transport. The individual panels are held together with easy-to-use ratchet-like clamps. The panels can be arranged into multiple shapes. The panels are held down by placing equally spaced “weights” that when filled with sand makes excellent anchors. Every component is portable. The panels can be easily and quickly setup or torn down by one person (although it is easier with 2 people). Some of the panels are supplied with clips for holding maps. I am selling 10 panels, 22 clamps, 8 weights and two stabilizing bars (used to form an entrance to the portable observatory). I have been using this system for a year with great satisfaction. The only reason that I am selling at this time is because I now use a recently completed roll-off roof observatory. Every component is in excellent condition with the exception of one of the panel sections which was slightly damaged secondary to an unfortunate garage door encounter. I would like to sell everything to the same buyer. Because of the expense and difficulty of shipping I will split the cost of shipping with the buyer. New, everything was nearly $1500. I will sell everything for $750 plus half the cost of shipping.
