Actually, there is a very easy way to create dome shape by using Point Loft. Here is what you need to do:

1.Create a workplane offset from the top of the cylinder.

2.Create a sketch point on the workplane or create a workpoint by intersecting the cylinder axis and the workplane.

3.Loft -> pick the top of the cylinder and pick the point -> go to Condition tab -> find the row for the point -> select the 3rd type (the other two have less control) -> pick the workplane to control tangency).

4.Make sure you set the tangent or smooth condition for the circular face loop too.
