Work on the dome is under full swing. Removed all the panels from the outer dome and cleaned them up.

Here are all the pieces removed. The tabs and slag have been sanded off.

A close-up on the inner and outer dome. The outer dome still has a bit of slag that needs to be sanded off so it is sitting a little high on the outer dome.

And just for fun, here is the resin eye held up.

The guy in the brown shorts always brings the best stuff!

Got a package today at lunch. This is the one I have been waiting for the most since I started this project.

Here it is in all its aluminum glory. The 300mm Murrer dome! How beautiful is that! You can see the inner dome in the background.

Here is a close up of the outer dome.

Here is the inner and out dome.

Now I need to get the outer dome cleaned up and the inner dome cut to make room for the parts.
