Double Globe Planetarium 3 5 2 2
A bit disappointing We bought this for our daughter's birthday as she is fascinated by astronomy. However, whilst she likes and enjoys using the planetarium, we thought that it would be a bit more involved and sophisticated for the price. The focus is fixed and we have found that both globes need to be held close (less than 50cms) to the ceiling to get maximum legibility. When it is on her bedside table, it is quite hard read most of the text, even in our low ceilinged cottage. The focal length for the solar system globe is different from the night sky globe, so the set requires repositioning to get maximum legibility when you switch between the two. The commentary track for the solar system globe is interesting, if a little outdated and occasionally inaccurate (attributing planets named after Roman gods to Greek ones) and there is no commentary to accompany the night sky globe. One slightly irritating feature is that there is no pause function on the commentary track so if you need to stop it, you have to start again from the beginning. The "manual" is pretty slight and the CD Rom that accompanies the set did not play on either our Apple Mac or PC. 19 January 2014
