Company Profile


   WE HAVE MOVED TO ORLANDO, FLORIDA - see new address and phone below!

NetLink Technologies, Inc. (registered to do business as Technical Innovations) is owned by Jerry and Cecile Smith of Orlando, Florida U.S.A. Technical Innovations has been producing and selling the HOME-DOME and PRO-DOME line of observatories since 1992. A small, family-owned business, we focus 100% on astronomy domes and automation equipment. Our observatories are designed to use the strength, appearance and long life of (marine grade) fiberglass. A highly skilled partner firm, with over thirty years experience in industrial fiberglass production, manufactures the dome sections under our close supervision.

All electronic components are hand built by our skilled and experienced staff. The overall quality has reached a level that allows us to offer a full one-year warranty on all electronic products, compared to the industry standard of 90 days on this type equipment. We have the ability to repair or replace any part or product ever produced by the company, even as items become obsolete and replaced by newer designs.

Our products are shipped around the world, with domes in more than 55 countries, (see interactive map on Home page - selected above or to the left). The RoboFocus auto-focusing system for telescopes is now in use on all 7 continents, having shipped 5 units to the French research station in Antarctica. Technical Innovations works with dealers and agents around the world, most often telescope dealers, to make our products as available as possible to astronomers anywhere on Earth. Some of these dealers have even translated assembly and instruction manuals into their local language. We are committed to improving and evolving our entire product line in order to continue meeting the changing needs of amateur and professional astronomers.
