A Painted Dome . . .

The dome has been completely cleaned and painted, thanks to the good folks from Ash Enterprises. The new grey color seemed a bit jarring at first, but once the dome was completed it looked (looks) great. (Digital projectors require domes with a lower reflectivity than opto-mechanical projectors, thus the grey color instead of a white.) And the cleaning took years of dust off the dome. It looks thirty years younger . . .
