The new powerdome release comes with an updated set of deep-sky objects including all Messier objects. We are grateful for the tremendous help of the Laupheim Planetarium under the guidance of Werner Kiesle to incorporate images which appear consistent with how the objects look best to the eyes of planetarium experts and visitors. Even more, Thomas Thuchan of the Laupheim Planetarium Association contributed 27 of his own excellent photographs of Messier objects to the new deep-sky catalog. All objects are permanently aligned to the star field. You can easily zoom into any of the objects using fingertip control in the powerdome control web interface. The objects can be presented as they would appear to the naked eye or they can also be excluded from the star field.
