Interesting "portable observatory"

I've been contemplating getting a tent with a screen room on it that is tall enough to sit in for when we go out camping or to remote sites. Only problem was I was going to have to design something to put around the scope also as a windbreak to help alleviate issues with it interfering with the scope as many times I won't be able to easily go back to that location and repeat the captures. A decent tent was going to set me back around $180, and figure another $75 to build a PVC pipe/tarp enclosure for the scope.

Was messing around in YouTube finding various astro topics and came up on a review of a 2 room pop-up observatory from Explore Scientific. It's about $280.


Going to do some more research, but on initial look, this may be just what the doctor ordered.
