Zeiss Powerdome Planetarium System - projects the world's most realistic night sky

Our Zeiss real-sky projection means you're surrounded by a star field that's closer to the real sky than that projected by any other planetarium instrument available today. The patented, fiber-optic projection system (each star has its own glass fiber!) projects more than 7,000 stars.

The Zeiss Powerdome Planetarium System uses the world's most advanced Skymaster ZKP4 star projector and a Spacegate Quinto full-dome digital projection system - with a database of two million planets, moons, stars, and galaxies. The system was acquired with a NASA grant from German optical systems manufacturer Carl Zeiss Inc.
