Hi all, and to all who want a "new baby" I can only say "Dream Big". Some four years ago my dream looked like this. It took a little over two years to get the project built.

Hi Ron and welcome to the Planetarium forum, I have moved your post if you don't mind because it's a different project from the one you replied before.

Your Planetarium is really wonderful, could you please provide with more details and specs about it:

Location:
Dome radius:
Projections screen:
Star projector:

really great work, how far away do you live from your planetarium? is it a private location?
very nice!!!
Cheers

To answer your questions;

Location: Cave Creek, Arizona
Dome radius: 15 feet - - -30 foot/9.1 meter diameter.
Projections screen: Painted dry wall.
Star projector: Viewlex/Minolta II B
How far away do you live from your planetarium? 50 feet/16 meters
Is it a private location? Yes, next to my home.

What started as a simple retirement project kept growing and growing and growing.
