Skypoint Planetariums is the developer and manufacturer of the Digistar Lite system, the ultimate in mobile planetariums, that includes the core features of Digistar software and is shipped all over the world.
With advanced features, not previously available in portable planetarium systems, Digistar Lite will revolutionize the way you present fulldome astronomy in your mobile dome. Digistar Lite is also perfect as an entry-level system for institutions, schools, and associations that have a small to medium permanent dome but not the budget for a full Digistar system.
In the field of Mobile Planetariums, Skypoint has successfully completed more than 100 installations worldwide. Check our map to discover the regions where we have been operational.
