Kendrick Observer Tent
Bought this tent two years ago to use with a Meade 10" SCT on a car camping trip through the western U.S. For a large tent it was relatively easy to set up. Plenty of room for 3-4 people in the sleeping section, and plently of room for the telescope in the observatory secion. Advantages: protection from wind and light pollution; ease and convenience of zipping closed the observatory section when you are done for the night. (For these reasons, I've even set it up in my backyard.) My only criticisms: 1) it took awhile to waterproof the seams, and 2) it feels a little unstable in high winds. One of my most enjoyable observing sessions I've ever had was with this tent in Joshua Tree National Park. (Resubmitted this vote after registering so that you would know who I am.)

This is a great item. Blocks out the wind to steady your scope and helps with outside lights. I set up my tent without anyone else helping with no problems. The door openings are large enough to move your equipment in and out but it depends on the size of your scope. One very nice feature is the zip out bug net. Not only does it cover the doors and windows but also the entire top of the observation room. Set up your scope, take the dust covers off for cool down and your set. The new reflective rain fly does help to reduce heat.

Great tent that protects you and your equipment.
