I visited Manchester a couple of days ago and found a possible room to host the dome (in F04) at the MHC and for a month. However, I would prefer the possibility to host it in Studio 2, as is already has the 5.1 system (five 8030s and one 7050 speakers) and it is the multimedia Studio (the Beckles).
Above, Paul Burke's calibration grid projected from blender
early calibration tests
Calibration seems awful.
projection detail (minimum focus distance is 1 meter (not good at all)
Reflected light is not too high compared to normal mirror surfaces.
Projected on temp screen (bot the right fabrics and size yet)
A different dome projection test
projection from a different angle
Vertical test not too good either (not comfortable for navigation)
