Apollo Viewlex Portable Planetarium
  This projector is a nice quality machine.  It's easy to use and transport!  It features one of the most accurate skies available in small planetariums.  The stars are produced by the 10 inch pinhole projection ball which shows 950 stars.  The planets are projected in a interesting way,  their projectors are mounted on the top of the star ball and share the same lamp source as the stars.  I believe parts of this machine were made by Goto for Viewlex. The machine came with a 15 foot blow-up portable dome. The entire set-up went for $4500.00 in 1980.
