diaspora note: Buhl Planetarium

Just wondering how many astronomers out there were first inspired by Buhl Planetarium?

Which just brings to mind a question. I have to admit I have not been over to the Carnegie Science Center in some time... Did they ever find a home for the old Zeiss Projector? I always figured it would end up a static display. Many years ago I talked to some friends over at the science center and showed them this old picture of a static zeiss projector I literally ran into unexpectedly in a mall in Jena, Germany.. the home of the Zeiss company and thus the birthplace of our Zeiss projector.
