      For those interested perhaps in the history fulldome imagery, there is a full hemispherical dome in Istanbul called "Panorama 1453". It depicts the conquest of Istanbul and is truly amazing. Imagine a 50m dome painted in exquisite detail ... forget about your fancy 4K or 8K digital planetariums, this is much better (of course only a single image). I've uploaded some images to the photos section of this forum. The first (scalemodel) gives an idea of the overall installation. The second (sampleshot) the lovely detail of one section of the view. The last (sampleladybug3.jpg) is a single frame from a LadyBug-3 video capture of the visitors to the site. Unfortunately none of these is a faithful representation of the wonder of actually being in the dome. The soundscape by the way is equally lovely.

          Stunning! Thanks Paul. Every war-themed painted panorama I've seen
          documented has been cylindrical. According the web site (http://www.panoramikmuze.com) this is a little over a year old.
          The tried and true propaganda techniques of history repeating
          themselves, with modifications...

          I recently visited the Bourbaki Panorama in Lucerne, Switzerland,
          which has been renovated to revive its 19th century glory: http://www.bourbakipanorama.ch/en/
