ZEISS Planetarium Technology

High Quality Projection Systems from the Inventor of the Planetarium

On 21 October, 1923, almost 100 years ago, Walther Bauersfeld, a brilliant designer at ZEISS, presented the world's first projection planetarium at the Deutsches Museum in Munich. Still to this day, planetarium projectors and, for 20 years fulldome systems, have been part of our core competence. You can be sure that the systems ordered will be designed, manufactured, configured, tested, installed and serviced by ZEISS, with a quality claim that is substantiated by independently certified management systems.

ZEISS Planetarium Technology in Overview

The star projector is still, 100 years after its invention, the best tool for teaching and learning astronomy. However, digital projection with its dome filling, moving images is an integral part of the modern planetarium. ZEISS offers both options, either as individual systems or in perfect combination as a hybrid planetarium. LED display domes represent the latest technology that is striving to enter the market.

Many Years of Know-how

ZEISS created history with the world's first planetarium projector. The 1923 Model I set technical standards that still apply today. The “Wonder of Jena” and its successors can be found all over the world. Many of them have been in continuous use for decades, each one a technical masterpiece, handmade and nearly indestructible.
