GOTO

GOTO - Harmonising Stars with Images.

GOTO HYBRID PLANETARIUM® refers to a system that combines an opto-mechanical planetarium projector with a fulldome digital video imaging system, all under one synchronizing control system.

While other manufacturers may be adding opto-mechanical and video systems into the same dome, they lack the full synchronization and full, live, real-time manual control console of the GOTO HYBRID. This single system with the best features of both worlds is truly The Educator’s Choice.

MSPD

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.
