Product Overview

The Digitarium® Gamma Portable model is a digital planetarium system designed for use in portable domes. It has the same unmatched usability of other Digitarium systems with our exclusive backlit, handheld remote control.

This model is designed for those who want a relatively high resolution system but need high brightness for a larger dome or more vivid colors. This is our brightest option for portable domes.
