Where do you go to the Bathroom

#1

Post by planecrazzzy »

Ok... That was just a "Hook"
Although, the reason I bought this was so girls could go to the bathroom on the pontoon boat.
Just remember that when you BUY yours , Bring a bucket too.
.
OK... On with the original thought for this being useful in the TSS community...
.
FIRST... it was only about $40 bucks... Find yours on Amazon...Many sizes...
Mine does not have a bottom , upper vents , Wide enough to squeeze in with a computer ,
and a Milkhouse heater...
.
Or...

Ever want to set-up early and keep the birds from poop'n on yer lenses...?
Or just keep it out of site till your ready.
It comes with bags to put sand in...or small stakes...
in a light breeze it doesn't need anything.
This thing POPS open... Or stuffs into this pouch with backpack straps.

.
Those pictures are terrible (blurry) I hope I do better in Space
.

.
PS Changing room or bathroom...Or mini Observatory...
I'll never use it as a changing room or a bathroom...
But this is Minnesota , That milkhouse heater sounds good (under$20)

OK, not what I expected when I saw your title but it did make me look :)

I will check these out. I've been casting around for an easy to take "room".

Your "hook" caught me.

I used to set up a portable pavilion and cover the sides with a tarp, but it just got too time consuming. Your tent looks possibly useful for several things.

I have been wondering about where people do go to the bathroom. My dark site is just three miles from my home. If necessary I can run back and forth, although it is more likely that I'll make quick trips back and forth to get something I forgot.

More recently I have had more guests than normal. Sometimes we have several guests for meteor showers. On our busiest week this summer we had 16 guests over a three-night period. They can't drive back and forth to my house all night. My wife would take a dim view of that.

Just got one. Now to solve the mystery of getting to nicely fold back up :P

Did it once but obviously wasn't paying attention to what I did.

"Now for my next trick, carefully observe that no time do my fingers leave my hand"

wish me luck.

Hi , Glad to hear your about your new booth...
Is it for your scope , or for you ? Maybe both.
.
I have two "Tips"...
One , on folding... you'll get it...
.
In the FLAT position... I take the TOP , and touch the bottom with it.
From there , the three hoops "Happen"...
.
The other tip is how to "Modify" your tent "CLIP"
.
Lemme Splain... The spring steel that is used in the frame of these... has a mild steel...Pressed to go around each
end of the spring steel where they meet each other...
This clip is crap....
BUT , all you need to do is reinforce it...
.
The spring steel will pop out of the side of the cheap clip... ( Watch your EYES )
.
All I did to fix it was...Fiber Tape...
You know that shipping tape with strings in it... The stuff that is hard to break ( Unless you know the trick of folding it on itself..)
So instead of making the Clip from some solid tube , The clip they made... now works
.
.
One note to others... This is truly "Pop Up"

Some SAY pop-up... But you have to string the poles through it...
I've noticed those are a little bigger.
.
.
Please post a picture when you can...
