I’m contemplating a 14′ star dome as a portable shelter for my astronomy gear. My question is how well these domes hold up to repeated putting up and taking down, perhaps a few dozen times per year? Would the grip clamps eventually wear out the cover material? Are there any other issues with wear and tear if frequent assembly/disassembly is required?
Using your dome 12 or more times a year should not wear it out. We had a customer use the dome a a puppet theater putting it up daily for several years without wear problems.
