Started Cutting Dome #2 Panels Out

In the immortal words of C-3PO, "Here we go again."

I started cutting out the dome panels for dome #2 tonight.

Once the panels were out, I sanded the laser flashing off of the backs of them, to get them nice and smooth for when they sit on the inner dome.

I left a few panels on; specifically, I left all the panels on that will require a corresponding hole in the inner dome. I want to determine exactly how the inner dome will be oriented inside the outer dome, and then mark the holes using those outer dome panels as a guide. I also left the top circle panel on for now, to help keep the dome sturdy.
