    The Ultimate Star Partyis a painting done on commission by John Foster. John Foster's work is known all over the world in astronomy circles, and has been featured in all the great astronomy magazines, cover photos, etc. The concept for this painting began with Steve's dream of a large telescope. When his 40-inch began to become a reality, he wondered "what would the ultimate star party be like? Ask yourself that question, as Steve did. Then imagine your very own 40-inch telescope, together with a group of your friends. You are on a distant planet somewhere outside our galaxy, perhaps in the Small Magellanic Cloud. It's a warm evening, and your telescopes are all set up. As darkness envelopes you, the splendor of the Milky Way Galaxy, as seen face on from this distant place, nearly fills the sky overhead. Imagine that!

     This marvelous painting depicts this unlikely event in glorious splendor. Click below to see a high-res view of this painting.
