Transform your darkened room into an outer space light show and explore the universe with the Deep Space Home Planetarium and Projector.
This table top planetarium and projector has its own stand and the main body of the unit rotates so you can use either the projector or the planetarium. The planetarium has two domes, one projecting star patterns and the other projecting constellations onto ceilings and walls.
Place the black star or constellation dome onto the slots on the head of the deep space unit, and watch the images rotate around your room. Add the night light dome and deep space becomes a cool night light with rotating stars and constellations.
Swivel the unit around and use the high quality projector to view 24 colour NASA and Hubble Telescope photographs of spacecraft, astronauts, planets and nebulae from three changeable slide discs.
- Projected image up to 1meter/36inches and still maintains clarity.
- Twist the lens head to focus the images on your wall or ceiling
- Requires 3AA batteries
Running from 7th June to 15th September 2013, Visions of the Universe tells the story of astronomical imaging – from the earliest drawings done by hand to the latest pictures from Hubble and the Mars Curiosity rover.
The exhibition brings together some of the best astronomical photographs ever made and showcases over a hundred captivating images of stars, planets, galaxies and many other celestial highlights.
From ethereal images of deep space to close-up views of our planetary neighbours, Visions of the Universe features photographs from NASA, the Russian space programme and some of the greatest telescopes in the world, as well as highlights from the last four years of the Royal Observatory’s highly successful Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition.
