Paper Abstract

Here we review work done in the past pertaining to enclosures and their effects on the telescopes they are designed to protect. From this experience we adopt what are considered benefits and try to avoid what are considered disadvantages in the protective enclosure designs, and apply the results to the National New Technology Telescope enclosure. We also present the results of one contracted study, done by Merz and McLellan of England. This study includes a preliminary design and a realistic cost estimate.
