Outline

Ultimate planetarium that recreates beautiful stars in the silent pitch-black sky. Natural beauty of the multi-tone starry sky is reproduced using a new lens that projects the whole sky in 32 segments with an ultra-bright LED light and advanced star plate processing technology, greatly improving the realism of stars and the Milky Way. Pentagonal and hexagonal covers on the projection lens create an innovative, impressive appearance. Holes of 23 bright star projection lenses (for stars of magnitude 1.5 or less) on the exterior offer a mechanical, elaborate image and high optical performance.
