Planetarium modeΒΆ

Gaia Sky includes a planetarium mode which is specially useful to capture videos to be displayed in a full dome. To get the best results, the screen resolution (or the screenshots resolution) should have an aspect ratio of 1:1. In the planetarium mode a few things happen:

  • Fisheye transform – A fisheye transform is applied to the source image.
  • Field of view – The field of view is increased to about 180 degrees.
  • View skew – In focus mode, the view is skewed about 50 degrees downwards.

Hint

To activate the planetarium mode, click on the dome-icon icon in the camera section of the controls window. Exit by clicking dome-icon again.
