I try to save 1 stars for the worse, but this was really chintzy. If this was $20 I would give it 3 or 4 stars as there is more of an assumption you get what you paid for. Definitely should not be $70.
It's really frustrating because my kids LOVE learning about the stars and it's potentially a GREAT tool for their bedtime and education, but it just falls short... given the price and the other competing products i'm severely disappointed in this, and the overall availability of quality planetariums....
If you decide to get this just know you will most likely have to do modifications and anyone without any electrical experience or confidence in fabricating plastic pieces will be very disappointed... :(
I turned it on and first thing I hear is a high pitched sound that came from it. I used the rotate function and the higher pitched sound became even louder. Not only that, the light bulb decided to flicker and die on me. The bulb didn't actually go out but if I tried to use the rotating setting, it would go out in 1 minute. I only just opened it and I've already decided to return it. Don't buy.
