The SIGETA AstroEye home planetarium - a unique educative and entertaining device for the entire family. You can explore the outlines of constellations known only by their name and discover what the position of stars is or will be on any given day and at any given time.
The SIGETA AstroEye planetarium kit features two interchangeable projector discs - one with a realistic depiction of the sky and the other with markings of visible constellations. The marked disc can be used for training and memorising, while the unmarked disc can be used to test your knowledge. Featuring an auto-off switch and a shooting star, it can also be used as a projection night light so you can fall asleep under the August sky each night!
The planetarium has a spherical housing which can be positioned as required - vertically, horizontally or in-between. The celestial map is then projected onto the ceiling, a wall or an inclined plane. The optimal viewing distance to the projection surface is approximately two metres.
The image sharpness is set by turning the ring placed on the northern pole of the housing. The date and time are adjusted by combining the markings on the slide and fixed wheels; the timeline can also be rewound with the "forward" and "next" buttons. The on/off button on the flying star mode and auto-off time selection (30 or 60 min) are also provided.
The power supply of the projector and motor is provided by 3 regular AA batteries, the batteries are energy efficient due to the high performance of the LED lamp.
The SIGETA AstroEye projector - the perfect gift for preschoolers or school-age children, as well as their parents, grandparents and other members of the family!
