What does a Digitarium projection actually look like? Below you will find unretouched digital fisheye photographs of actual dome projection for:
- Digitarium Æthos 2.5k
- Digitarium Kappa
- Digitarium Zeta
- Digitarium Epsilon
- Digitarium Gamma
- Digitarium Delta
Please bear in mind that a camera and the human eye differ so this can only be an approximation, and cameras lenses have their own quality issues. Note that your monitor calibration, your browser rendering, and the compression in these image files will also affect the visual appearance of these images.
These photos were all taken inside our 6m fiberglass fixed dome (Digitarium Æthos, Kappa, and Zeta photos) or a Digitalis 5m inflatable dome. Click on an image for a larger view.

With a public event coming up this weekend, and my being absent meaning no planetarium show (for the second month in a row), something had to be done. So I decided to look into [our] Digitarium's scripting feature. All I can say is, wow, wow, wow!
