I love this painting that hangs at Naylor Observatory. The dome is spot on, and the telescope is a great reproduction of our 17" Classic Cassegrain. Really nice detail on the planets, and the DSOs are also nicely done.

That's pretty neat.  Was it painted by a member of the observatory?

Yes, Dave Mitsky just told me his name, but I forgot it already.

That's real nice. Love the detail - even has the shadow of Saturn on its rings.
