Great Boook with many real world case studies,
This review is from: Setting-Up a Small Observatory: From Concept to Construction (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series) (Paperback)
This book gives an excellent introduction why and how to build or buy an observatory.
It starts with the description and discussion of pros and cons of various types of equipment (mounts, telescopes and imaging).
The basic concepts for amateur observatories are explained and illustrated by many pictures.
Finally a comprehensive section with many real world examples inspires to build an own observatory.
