Premium Phoenix Astro Observatory

The Premium Pheonix Observatory kick-starts your adventure in astronomy into overdrive, using this quality tent expands your options in any situation. Combined with the Astrophotography Kit & the protective Heavy Duty Ground Mat, the observatory protects your imaging equipment even more by extending the height of the base tent up to 2.6m, while also protecting your Pheonix Observatory from the harsh environments.

With premium fixtures, fittings, and materials that have been selected specifically to reduce heat, decrease light penetration and provide high durability, at starpoint australis we are sure that you will get the most of your experience wherever you may roam!

This version of the portable observatory series – The Pheonix Observatory has extra heavy-duty 500gsm PVC canvas that is waterproof to stop ingress of water or rising moisture as it condensates on the base of your tent.

The Pheonix Observatory boasts impressive specifications for its walls and roof with extra strong PU coated Oxford material and 3000mm water head rating. UV stable with its silver on the outside reflecting sunlight (or other campers headlights) and Jet Black interior is the perfect combination that will see you sleeping through the morning without a problem.

The observatory kit provides you with four quality aluminium telescopic poles, additional seamless segmented poles and all the additional guy ropes/tent pegs to keep everything stable. The windshield material is the same as the base phoenix providing a seamless addition not just an afterthought.

Designed with ease of use in mind, the observatory wind shield can be configured at four points around the base observatory and can extend to your requirements up to its maximum height. Additionally, there are pole clips located at eight points around the opening to mould the wind shield to your specific requirement

Overall, this addition will ensure when all others have given up, your're still imaging and capturing data.

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.
