With over 45 years experience in observational astronomy, observatory and telescope design, I can also help you bring the real sky closer to your visitors.  This expertise in astronomical observation and photography has enabled me to build a library of selected images for use in your programs.  New images are constantly being collected for my library archives. 

Many planetariums use panoramic and all-sky slide systems.  I offer a selection of actual images from various astronomical sites or interesting locations.  I also can provide custom content by coming to your site or special location to make a set of images for your facility using the highest quality equipment and lenses.
