At Main Sequence Projection Domes we manufacture and retail Fulldome systems consisting of high quality, British made, inflatable projection domes and Fulldome projection systems for use within them. Our projection systems are also ideal for small fixed planetariums.

As experienced fulldome users, we have designed out much of the inconvenience and accelerated wear and tear of mobile and small fixed planetariums to produce equipment that is of the highest quality, robust, and, above all, safe. It is for these reasons, and our unstinting after sales support, that fulldome professionals turn to us in preference to other systems they have used.


Explorer Dome

Explorer Dome has been around for over 20 years! From our humble beginnings in 1998, we have come a long way with four domes, chemistry presentations, workshops, a team of specialist presenters and a base in Bristol and now the Midlands.
