Falling asleep under the night sky
on 31 August 2011
Having wanted a home planetarium for several years, but struggled to justify the cost of the more expensive imported Sega items and been continually disappointed by the quality of entry level offerings, I was pleased to stumble across a product at a reasonable price from a company with a history in optics.
The planetarium is actually manufactured by Meade and sold under license by several other brands.
It comes with two discs, one with marked constellations, the other a more generic star field.
The product itself is well made and sturdy, whilst sold as a Junior item, it does not look out of place in my bedroom, projecting the night sky onto the ceiling as I drift off to sleep.
Even with the motor running in rotate mode, it is near silent.
Highly recommended, perfectly complemented by Brian Eno's Apollo album.
