Star Ceiling Constellations for the XVR Star Field
If you love astronomy and star gazing and the idea of having a super realistic star ceiling then you may also want star constellations within that star ceiling. You can see in the above image that this bedroom ceiling not only has random stars but also the Aries, Monoceros and Canis_Major star constellations set up astronomically correct. Using my Glowpatch projection templates you can set up this amazing night sky without having to map out or guess your star positions making it fast, easy and accurate.
I no longer supply constellation templates as I don’t have the time so I have setup pdf files for each of the below constellations which you can print and then make your own projection templates. When you print the template do so on A4 card stock rather than normal paper as you will get a better projection. Also this page will not go into how and why the stars work for that information see the XVR Star Ceiling page.
In this image you can see the projection of the Aries constellation that I setup as an example. When you move the torch closer or further from the template you will vary the projection size. You want around a 400mm span for each individual constellation that you are setting up and the torch must have a wide beam as shown.
