We are designing a new home. I have this wild idea about adding a rooftop remote controlled, remote imaging observatory to the design. In my mind's eye, its something like sitting in the family room with a remote control something nearly as simple as a Meade ETX remote. Rooftop observatory opens, scope swings, and the resulting telescope images delivered on HDTV flat plasma TV monitor. I think none of this is science-fiction, but I am outside my skill set. I need professional system design help. Who should I contact?
