Digistar 5 features spectacular digital images and sounds that create a complete sensory experience that will spark everyone’s imagination.

The amazing ‘out of this world’ images will have a lasting impact on your view of where you see yourself in the cosmic environment.

The Digistar 5 system uses the most up-to-date video projection technologies for the full-dome display in Armagh Planetarium. Digistar 5 also includes a powerful show production system which allows the creation of custom-made full-dome movies. Armagh Planetarium offers a broad range of different shows using the latest modern technology to display custom-made night sky presentations that accurately show the stars, constellations and other fascinating objects in their correct positions in the synthetic night sky. This way, you can visit during the day, and travel to the future to see the night sky that evening on the dome-shaped theatre ceiling.
