The unique design of this dome-shaped star chart allows for a nearly undistorted depiction of the starry sky, not unlike the inside of a planetarium dome. It solves the ancient cartographer problem of mapping a three-dimensional sphere onto a flat surface in a very elegant way.

The Star Dome is easy to build. It is also stackable and therefore ideal for astronomical group work, e.g. at school or in Scout groups.

Construction time: about 40 minutes

Diameter: 21 cm
