Zeiss Projector Exhibit Opens at CSC   Message List  
Reply | Delete Message #924 of 924 | Next >
Today (2010 July 1), The Carnegie Science Center opened their display of Buhl
Planetarium's historic Zeiss II Planetarium Projector, in the Science Center's
Atrium Gallery.

No, I have not yet seen it. Of course, The Carnegie Science Center did not
bother to notify me of the exhibit's opening. I found out about it late this
afternoon, when a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter called for a comment on the
exhibit's opening.

I told the reporter that the exhibit was "a long time coming." I was happy that
that the Zeiss II Projector was renovated and on public display, but I was
concerned that the projector still cannot do what it does best: show the stars
and planets in a planetarium. I mentioned that the Buhl's Zeiss Projector is
second-to-none in the display of stars and planets in a planetarium. So, you may
want to look for the article in tomorrow's Trib.

I did find The Carnegie Science Center news release (dated June 30) regarding
the exhibit opening. I also found a KDKA-TV 2 video news report, now archived in
their on-line video library (search "star projector" to find the report, when
you reach their on-line video library). You can find links to both of these
reports at this link:
