This is a nice little "theater" but the focus is nearly impossible to achieve. The entire mechanism has to be placed within 2 feet of the ceiling or you can't read any of the names of the constellations. At more than 2 feet, everything is blurred.
I was very disappointed with the Star Theater. I was expecting the stars to be lit up by the light source, but upon turning it on found out that the stars are actually shadows of the stars on the ball. So when you turn out the lights, the constellations are dark and the background is lighter. My daughters were so gracious and kept on saying, "Daddy, it's ok, we like it anyway", but I could tell that they were very disappointed as am I.
