Octans Base Kit

The Octans Observatory boasts impressive specifications for its walls and roof with extra-strong PU-coated Oxford material and a 3000mm water head rating. UV stable with a silver coating on the outside reflecting sunlight (or other campers' headlights) and Jet Black inside, it's the perfect combination that will see you sleeping into the morning without a problem.

Designed and tested in Australia in all conditions from the rainy temperate climates to the rugged coastline of Western Australia, up to the harsh landscape of the McDonald ranges in Western Australia's Pilbara region, this is the ultimate in portable observatories.
