Uniontown, PA:

In September 2023, Seiler delivered a turn-key portable planetarium system to Laurel Highlands School District in Uniontown, PA. The 5m single-pressure dome features a double-door entrance, making it perfect for programs requiring wheelchair access. The 7,000 lumen WUXGA projection system features a Seiler-designed lens stabilizer which makes for easy installation, removal and adjustment of the fisheye lens. An intuitive Seiler Planetarium Essentials GUI for OpenSpace allows the operator to work from a wireless tablet.
