Yes, you're quite right. I don't know where I got the idea they were
cheap! I'm sure I remember seeing domes somewhere and thinking I could
get some, but the somewhere obviously wasn't E.S.! The largest I can
see there is 0.4m (16") diameter and costs an amazing 75 US$.

Oh well, back to the drawing board.
