"Last Friday you lent me a copy of "Star of Bethlehem" because I was unable to show "(competing season show)" as a result of my laptop crashing and our inability to get it running on our backup computer. We had two full houses and without your help, I would not have been able to present a seasonally appropriate show. Your rescue was sincerely appreciated."
- John Hopkins, Tomchin Planetarium, Dec 2011. (We try to be available even on holidays to help our customers!)

- Customer at CAST meeting, 2011. (Answer: yes, but of course our dome is much better!)
"The Dome was the hit of science night... we can't wait to have you back next year.. and come to all the classes too!"
- Robert Cunningham, Science Teacher, 2010.
"Renting was fantastic.. we are asking our district to purchase a system so all students can benefit every year!"
- Science Teacher, 2010.
"Not only could my hospital patients "roll in" to the dome, one even brought in his IV pole!"
- Nurse at MD Anderson Cancer Center, 2009.
"We have just placed an order for our third Discovery Dome® and want a quote for four more.
I want to compliment you on how helpful and courteous your sales and customer server staff are."

"Thank you so much for letting us borrow the dome. It was so amazing. My favorite one was the volcano and it felt like I was actually there. Thank you so much - you gave me a thrillseeking event that I can enjoy and learn from."

(competing dome). This one is more fun, and a
lot less scary!" - teacher at

"I accidentally left some rope lights turned on
when I collapsed the dome overnight. The lights
got hot, trapped between the dome material and
the wooden floor. The next morning, the wooden
floor had scorch marks on it but the dome didn't
even show any scorching!" - GoDome
"I set up my (competing dome) and the top
was about 9 inches away from an incandescent light.
Within just a few minutes, a large section of
the dome had melted. This dome's fire retardancy
is very important to me." - teacher
at SACNAS meeting, Denver, 2005.
"The doorway easily accommodated my wheelchair,
and I was able to enjoy the show without interrupting
anyone else" - Nonie, visitor

"Wow! What a presentation! Mrs. Nadony's
Class was amazed at the 3D effects and the outstanding
pictures at the [e-Planetarium] presentation.
Most of the class and myself saw a big black igloo
through the gym's window, I thought that it would
be so small and boring inside. But when I went
inside, it was nothing like I expected. Inside,
it was so big and when you showed me the presentation,
it blew me away! I learned so much about Saturn
and it's rings, like over a million asteroids
float around Saturn all the time. Thanks again
for bringing the planetarium to our Star Party!"
- Mrs. Nadolny's Class - Douglas School,
"I can't thank you enough for your wonderful
presentation at the Acton Star Party. Your willingness
to fit in as many students and parents as was
reasonable into the planetarium was most appreciated.
Students and parents alike were amazed by your
program and I know you have a lot of new fans."
- E.S. Acton Public Schools, 2005.
"Thank you for the wonderful exprience
at the Star Party! It was TONS of fun. The [e-Planetarium
Dome] that taught you stuff on Saturn's rings
was cool... Thank you so, so, so much. You're
the greatest!" - M.C. (Student),
"Thank you for the starparty! It was fun,
especially the [e-Planetarium] theater!!!"
- Sincerely, Alan (Student) ,2005.
"This year we added a new twist to the
indoor activities with the newly minted e-Planetarium
– playing to sell out crowds...e-Planetarium
is such a great addition to the Acton Star Party.
Kids of all size and ages enjoyed the show and
immediately went outside to talk with the Astronomers
and see the Saturn, the Ring World for themselves.
I heartly recommend this wonderful way to expand
a child's mind. The e-Planetarium will be a
staple of all our future Star Parties"
- Steven Feinstein, Acton Star Party
