A Canadian Observatory Maker Success Story!

General Meeting for May 12th 2017.

This Spring SkyShed is launching POD MAX, a “mid sized” observatory at 12.5′ in diameter, and the POD MAX funding program – The Starships Project. Wayne will be focusing on these endeavors and how they will further aid the astro community, and STEM education.

Wayne Parker

When not performing as the bassist in Glass Tiger, Wayne spends his time pursuing his other passion – Astronomy.

His love of astronomy led to the creation of SkyShed Observatories, a South-Western Ontario observatory company that designs and builds telescope observatories for astronomers.

Since launching the company in 2003, Wayne’s SkyShed designs have become popular all over the world, and featured in international astronomy magazines and on TV. As well as with organizations like NASA, many schools, and astronomy clubs.

Over the years Wayne and SkyShed have received many awards, including multiple Sky & Telescope magazine “Hot Product” and Astronomy magazine “Star Products” awards.
