First impression was a roof opening for a telescope (have seen them before). But the 3 panel on the lower section ruled that out.

It is over a garage, wonder if something is being craned in and out.

Pretty sure there is living space over the garage. Never been in this house but have seen many similar set ups over the years.

You’re pretty close but nothing to do with a telescope

A slight step up from the huts I see in my area if that is the same holiday


Some of the wealthier ones have a 10’x10’ skylight that opens in the middle. When I was younger many of the houses had a roof with wheels that rolled out on a track.
Majority still use this one set up on their back decks

I “worship” a lot of things in my house.

Most are unsuitable for polite conversation.

I figure that disqualifies me for a tax break..
And a government job....
And possibly blood transfusions.


Nice moonroofs though.
Thanks for posting.

Notice:
- cables coming out from the bottom corners
- what appears to be old sunlights on the side
- the loss of roof material below the panels where the rain runs and drops down to roof just above the gutter. So panels are usually in position during weather
- gutter would prevent panel from sliding down
- no room for a panel to slide left, and the right panel would overhang if slides right

So, middle panel probably slides up, or possibly all three

What cables ? Think what you’re seeing are the shingles cut on an angle
