      Dear Planetarians;

      Here is a quick update regarding Two Small Pieces of Glass planetarium
      program for IYA. The program was funded by NSF and is being provided to IPS
      members courtesy of the production partners (Buhl Planetarium, Imiloa
      Astronomy Center, and Interstellar Studios).

      TRADITIONAL DOME SHOW (FREE)

      The DVD's containing contents for the traditional dome show will be burned
      on Monday, March 30th and will be in the mail to IPS members by Friday,
      April 3rd.

      This process has been a Herculean effort by Buhl Planetarium staff members
      James Hughes and Frank Mancuso who converted the full dome show to a
      traditional one in about a 6 week process. Special thanks is due them for
      their efforts.

      DIGITAL FULL DOME SHOW ($350)

      Drives for the digital full dome show started shipping on Monday, March
      23rd. An email with the required license agreement was sent out to folks
      who signed up online for the program on February 23rd. The cost of the hard
      drive is $350. Note the content is FREE, but the hard drives are cost
      recovery (drive, shipping, duplication labor, etc.). If you need the
      licensing agreement, contact me or James and we can email you the pdf
      document.

      To get the content you must return the licensing agreement to James Hughes
      at Buhl Planetarium/Carnegie Science Center
      (hughesj@...). James is also the contact for payment
      information regarding the drives. If you have questions regarding when your
      drive shipped or will ship, please contact James. In Africa, Europe or the
      Middle East contact Robin Sip ( <mailto:rsip@...> rsip@...)
      or (robinm3d@...).

      Vendors have been contacted and several will be able to provide it as well
      to their customers. Customers will still need to complete the license
      agreement and send it to James Hughes.

      We hope you enjoy the program and that you are able to use it for years to
      come. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me,
      James Hughes or Robin Sip.

        E-Planetarium is distributing single-projector versions of the shows
        (1400x1400 fisheye, truncated, prewarped, etc..._)

        It will come free with any new Discovery Dome sales in 2009.
        For others, there will be a very modest formatting fee and postage fee.
        You have to send the license first to James Hughes....
        But it's a lot cheaper than the $350, since you won't need the hard
        drive with the frames.
