Equipment: The Marshall W. Alworth Theater
The Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium
The Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium is equipped with a Spitz A3P star machine, which projects the stars onto the surface of the 30 foot dome. Installed when the planetarium was built in 1965, the star machine can take you to any observing point in the world, projecting nearly 1500 stars.
For lectures and educational presentations, the Planetarium is equipped with two LCD digital Projectors. The first of these is a GeoDome Evolver projector, which projectes a truncated fisheye fulldome projection of shows and presentations. The other projector is for ordinary projections. Along with our DVD players, stereo system and seating for 60+ people, the our only limitation is your imagination.
