Kendrick Stargate II Observatory Tent

The tents have shipped from our manufacturer we are projecting to ship from our location to our customers by "approximately" August 20. This is a month later than we expected but it is due to situations beyond our control.

We are taking pre-orders. A $150.00 deposit is required to hold your place in line. Balance to be paid upon shipment of tent. Shipping is $10.00 for Canada/USA (lower 48). Anywhere else we will quote shipping.

Some of the notable changes that will be made to this tent but are not shown in these images are:

  • Flooring to extend up the sides for better waterproofness.
  • Rainfly will be white or off-white.
  • Side door will be moved to the sleeping end of the tent.
  • Vestibule moved to the sleeping end of the tent.

Karl Baltz's Review (PDF)
We highly recommend you read Karl Baltz's review as it is very comprehensive and has a number of very helpful images.

This is the fourth revision of our popular Observing Tent. It hearkens back to the original design but with some substantial upgrades and improvements.

Our Observing tents provide:

  1. A secure, private, enclosed environment for amateur astronomers to image, observe and/or store their astronomy equipment while out camping or while attending star parties.
  2. Weather protection. Equipment can be quickly protected from approaching storms.
  3. Comfort. With reduced air movement inside the tent, an imager or observer will find they are considerably more comfortable doing their work within the tent as wind chill (which is very noticeable even on summer nights) is reduced greatly.
  4. Ease of set up in a very portable package. Set-up time 15 to 20 minutes.

Our manufacturer has sent us several images of the new tents that are now on their way to us. Higher quality images will be put onto the site once we have received them and have a chance to set them up.

GLO-ROPE Accessory
This unique product has amazing, long lasting glow in the dark capability that lasts for hours! Replace your guy lines with Glo-Rope and no-one will trip over your tent guy lines with this in place! Our tests showed the rope still glowing 7.5 hours after the sun had set!

Sold in 1 foot increments.

Heavy Duty Tent Pegs
10" timber nails with large Fender washers. The nails slip into the fender washers and they are fantastic as tent poles and it would take an incredibly strong wind to pull them out of the ground.

GLO-STRIPS Accessory
This unique product has amazing, long lasting glow in the dark capability that lasts for hours! Tie it to your guy lines and other campers will easily see the whereabouts of your guy lines! Not as good a glow in the dark guy lines but certainly cheaper! Like the Glo-Rope, the fabric was still glowing 7.5 hours after the sun had set!

These are 1" wide x 12" long. Sold in packs of 5.
