Digitarium® Delta 5 Digital Planetarium System
The new Digitarium Delta 5 is our entry level planetarium system, designed to be easy to transport, set up, and teach with. It projects high contrast 1080 pixel diameter imagery over a full dome with no blind spots or cut-outs. It is the culmination of years of development effort, with our own innovative proprietary lens design.
The Digitarium Delta 5 offers not just a compact size but quick set up, intuitive user interfaces, high resolution, excellent projection quality, and wealth of other features. Digitalis sells inflatable domes in several diameters for a complete portable solution.

*Brightness is the main issue, since the larger the dome, the larger the surface area the light from the projector must cover.
**Provided for comparison purposes with other systems. Actual brightness with a fisheye lens is significantly less due to not projecting the whole video rectangle and differing lens properties. Please see any of our other models if you need a brighter system.
***The rugged transit case has built in wheels and an extendable handle for easy transport on flat surfaces.
