      Get ready to collaborate with the best minds and talents in the Full Dome
      field!

      Sky-Skan's Professional Development group announces the formation of the
      DigitalSky Academy.

      The Academy will foster collaboration among DigitalSky users to build an
      active community online (E-Mail and forums) and offline (Academy meetings,
      Master Class software training for DigitalSky users, and mailings). The
      Professional Development staff at Sky-Skan will contribute with the latest
      software support plus demonstrate the latest cutting-edge Full Dome content.

      Forthcoming training sessions and Academy meetings are planned for MAPS on
      May 17 and at IPS on July 28, 2006.

      The first DigitalSky Academy meeting will be on the registration day of the
      MAPS conference (9 a.m. - 5 p.m., May 17) in New Jersey (see details below).
      All Sky-Skan customers are welcome to join the Academy and attend this first
      meeting. The focus will be:

      New on-line DigitalSky Academy Forum.
      The latest DigitalSky software updates.
      The new Digital Universe Plug-in for DigitalSky 2 from AMNH.
      Introducing the Pilot's Guide for DigitalSky 2.
      Sky-Skan news and future Academy training sessions.

      The latest discoveries and science with a focus on astronomy:

      New DigitalSky scripts and graphical content.
      Lessons on how to use DigitalSky to tell stories.

      DigitalSky users enjoy the best Full Dome toolbox, so why not join us for a
      day of getting the best from your tools? Registration is free, but space is
      limited for training stations (12 people) and will be offered on a first
      come-first served basis. Preference will be given to current DigitalSky
      users.

      To sign up, please contact Martin Ratcliffe, Director of the Professional
      Development group, at ratcliffe@... or 603-305-4270.

      Please reply before Friday, May 12 so we can prepare your spot at the
      meeting!
