Optical planetarium solution

MEGASTAR is a planetarium which reminds you of our belonging to the Milky Way Galaxy For the first time in the world, the MEGASTAR represented the Milky Way as a group of stars and projected more than one million stars at once. Although naked eye cannot distinguish them, it is undoubtedly a scattering of small stars shining there one by one. By faithfully displaying such a faint existence, we made it possible to reproduce the depth of the real starry sky. People who experience the MEGASTAR starry sky are moved to tears as it unwittingly glimpses the mystery of the creation of the Universe hidden in the depths of life.
