Yes. I was able to pull the legs out by just going around and around for a bit. Then I got into the middle of the dome area, got down on one knee and held the frame above my head slowly, which caused the roof frame to open fully. Then (while the legs are still only 4' tall and not yet extended) I started putting the roof on starting with the side facing the direction of the wind. After the roof was on I extended the legs, one at a time (criss-crossing) until they were all fully extended. The rest was fairly easy. I almost asked a complete stranger for help, but I am glad I didn't. I had no problem putting it up on my own. Also, it goes up slowly the first time you assemble it, but I am sure it assembles much more quickly after a bit of practice.

I needed two people to pull the framing apart to open it, to form the perimeter. Perhaps one person could do it if that person found something to hook an opposite leg of the frame on [or tie it to], so one could pull the framing open from the opposite side single-handedly? But, whatever you hooked it on would have to remain stationary, resisting your pulling, so the framing opens up.
The other difficulty was getting the canopy over the dome, once it was partially set up. I needed the help of another person to do that--the dome was too high. I haven't tried it, but if the canopy dome was put on before the frame was lifted very high, perhaps one person could do it?
Other than those two aspects of the process, I found the rest easy for one person to accomplish.
probably not, my son had to help me put it up, you have to extend the legs two at a time, one person on each side.
With "perseverance"! I think it can be done by one person, tho' not easily or quickly.
Not really, you need at least 1-2 other people to help you.
Not easily. It is doable, but you will be a little grumpy.
I am sure you could, It would just take a little time. I put it up with my 7 year old boy.
It is pretty big, but yes probably can be set up by one person. It would help to have another person help spread it out.
You really need two people.
