Catwalk


Catwalk

Behind and encircling the planetarium dome is our catwalk. We use the catwalk to access our slide projectors and some of our special effects. We have nine slide projectors, six of which we use for almost every program. The projectors, which are capable of holding 80 slides each, project through tiny holes in the dome. The images appear on the dome in front of the audience.
