    Question Looking for Advice / Recommendation for a Home Planetarium



    My wife and I would like to brush up on spotting the constellations and knowing the night sky without paper and labels.

    I was thinking of getting a home planetarium / projector.

    Lots of vintage ones on eBay for under $100 but the modern ones seem to all be $500-800 (ouch).

    Does anyone have a make / model recommendation or advice.

    Thank you!
