Hi Jake,

I'm not sure I would can it a "Tono" that is more of a traditional Mongolian yurt term ...

There are 5 separate pieces (purlins) that set into mortis joints which comprise the perimeter of the central skylight openings.

It is a pentagon so it doesn't have a diameter, but the span across the center averages out to 78 inches.

This is a ten foot 'travel' yurt being built inside a 20 foot 'tri-wall' yurt.

-G'day

Well, if its a part of a yurt I would call it a Tono, but as long as its yours then you can put whatever name you want to on it, thats a pretty impressive measurement for that size yurt.
