History

 

Grover Brotherston

 

In 1995 Grover Brotherston, at the age of 75 founded Astro Haven Astronomical Ltd with the idea of using fiberglass for low cost dome construction. After building a couple of rotating domes he came up with the idea of a non-rotating fiberglass clamshell design.

In the thirteen years following he expanded the range of these domes from the 7-foot model up to the big 20-foot domes together with a host of variations and related products like the oval dome and the 4-foot support structure. Along the way he conceived of other applications including planetariums and concert bandstands.

At the age of 88 he reluctantly passed the mantel and we are proud to inherit a great design legacy. Grover still contributes with drawings of new dome designs and subject matter expertise. You may well see him actively supporting our booth at a trade show.
