Re: Celestia in planetarium domes?

Hello bodin, me again.
Sorry, I think I wasn't clear enough on the topic of how to set up your system.
In the wiki area you'll look for the Advanced Topics section. Once you find it, in the projection area you'll see a topic that reads Dome projection for spheric mirror.
Regards

Re: Celestia in planetarium domes?

All you have to do is download the stellarium 0.8.2 for the operating system you have (windows, mac, linux). The program itself already includes distortion features (fisheye, spheric mirror,, perspective, etc.). When you install the program, press the <1> key, this brings a configuration window. In ...

Re: Celestia in planetarium domes?

Hello Bodin. About the mirror we first buy a security mirror (a Fred Silver mirror) with 18" in diameter. because this is a second surface mirror, we got some "ghost" on the image projected on the dome, but for a start, this was good. Now we buy a first surface mirror from Acrilconvex in Australia. ...

Re: Lua Edu Tools beta version

Hello Vincent, this is Ramon from Mexico.
Great job on the Celestia EDU.
I just got one question for now: this version of Celestia EDU doesn't have the sound patch? I've already instaled and check out the files and I can't see nothing related with sound.

Re: A digital theater in Mexico using CELESTIA

Thanks a lot Selden for your quick response, I already check the web page of Paul Bourke. We already use a spherical mirror to project in the dome of our planetarium but the image of celestia is distorted because is made to be projected on a flat screen, not in a dome. So you have to deform the imag...
