Star Theater Pro Home Planetarium
The Star Theater Pro is a sleek, portable projector that projects an exciting map of the night sky directly onto your ceiling or wall. This optical star projection system comes with two discs, a Starfield disc and an Earth/Moon/Sun disc, that can be easily inserted into the spherical projector unit to give you a crystal-clear display of cosmic scenery. Star Theater Pro is the optical projection system that allows you to explore distant galaxies from the comfort of your bed or provide stellar entertainment for friends and family.
Projector Turns Your Home into a Planetarium
The Star Theater Pro optical star projection system is a sleek, spherical projector that transforms any wall or ceiling into a starry night sky. The main projection unit is a modern-looking, plastic sphere that sits on a simple base, which swivels the projector easily and securely into any position. Once the projector is in position, the projection can be viewed as a still image or as a slowly rotating view of the night sky by selecting the rotate option on the main control panel. Other features include a timed shut-off option, a focus dial, an optical-quality lens, and the option to power the unit by AA batteries (not included) or AC adapter (included.) The included planetarium soundtrack can be played on any CD player while using the Star Theater Pro to enhance the overall planetarium experience.
Versatile Projector Works Almost Anywhere
The Star Theater Pro is easy to set up and comes with two image discs, a Starfield disc and an Earth/Moon/Sun disc. These discs fit into the disc tray located on the front of the projector. Once inserted, the spherical projector can be turned to face any flat wall or ceiling surface. The focus dial located on the top of the projector around the optical lens can then be used to make sure the galactic image is sharp and crystal clear.
The small size and sleek shape of the projector make it easy to place in a bedroom or living room unobtrusively, and the option to power the projector by battery makes it possible to place it in almost any room in your home. Set up the projector in your living room as an entertaining way to learn about the solar system and distant galaxies, or use it to drift off to sleep in your bedroom by setting the shut-off timer and playing the planetarium background soundtrack.
