The Pomenis Enclosure (The "Dog House")
We have developed a concept for a portable telescope enclosure based on the similar enclosures used by the Las Cumbres Observatory. The "Dog House" provides a simple, low profile weather protection and all-sky access with a simple mechanical structure. The enclosure is integrated onto a trailer to allow the system to be relocated from one site to another. The trailer also houses the computers, control, metrological and security instrumentation required for operations. This allows us to deploy Pomenis with a minimal amount of local infrastructure improvements and permitting. Pomenis will usually be located at Mt Lemmon, and will be redeployed periodically for night sky brightness measurement campaigns at our other observatory sites.
