Well its been a while since I updated this thread, and some changes have been in order. I did mention nearly 8 months ago that I would begin work on adding a fibre optic star ceiling to my theatre room. Ive finally gotten round to begin work on it!
Unfortunately life got in the way of so many things on my 'To Do' list, but Im desperate to get these things done by summer (which starts soon here in the southern hemisphere) so the ceiling is back on track.
I decided in the end to make a suspended ceiling of sorts rather than drill straight into the plasterboard, as this quite honestly would've added additional months to the build. So Ive settled on two pieces of 6mm MDF, which will give me a square of 1830 x 1830. I have built a wooden frame (1400 x 1400) which will bolt through plasterboard onto treated pine in-ceiling and then across the metal joists in the roof space. The frame has 4 right-angled brackets which will be used for this purpose, in conjunction with bolts and wing nuts to allow a degree of fine tuning should the frame not be 100% flat.
I have also decided to add clear-coloured rope light around the frame which will become the main light. I will remove the existing light in the middle of the room and add 4 downlights to the corners of the room.
For now, here is a pic of the finished initial frame:-

I remember looking at your thread when you first posted it and I still think from a style stand point (not to mention photographic skills standpoint) you have one of the best threads here. It doesn't hurt that you have some pretty nice equipment too! Very nice and I can't wait to see the starry ceiling.

In the Theatre Room yes it is. When I began renovating the Theatre I did have an Aussiemorphic anamorphic lens but at the 11th hour decided (at the time) it was too hard, so sold it. In the future (and price willing) Ill get into it again.

So its been a while since I updated. Quite a lot has gone on - some projects finished, some hardly begun!
The fibre optic ceiling has been put on hold. It will happen, but a few months away at best.

But needless to say I'm extremely happy to welcome this lovely turntable to the household...
