A friendly group for folks interested in building and/or operating a planetarium. There are a wide range of possible uses for small planetariums ranging from traditional astronomy education, to some of the new opportunities in wider science education, visualisation, art, and entertainment offered by fulldome digital projection. Backyard enthusiasts, operators of portable planetarium businesses or permanent planetariums, equipment vendors, and content suppliers are all welcome.
