ZEISS Star Projectors Natural and Accurate Sky Representation

The projection of an impressively clear and brilliant starry sky is the requirement of numerous planetariums, which have not only the task of imparting knowledge, but also to offer a wide range of programs from the fields of science, culture and entertainment. ZEISS attaches great importance to the projection of the starry sky, so to ensure that it appears as brilliant under the dome as it does in nature under the best observation conditions, highly developed technologies are employed.
