Installing a fiber optic starfield is one of the most  beautiful things you can do to a ceiling in a home theater, entrance way  or anywhere you want to create a dramatic, soothing effect. And you’re not limited to the ceiling either.  We’ve done movie theaters, business  and homes, ceilings, walls and, yes, floors.  If you want sound deadening as well as spectacular effect, you can use a fiber optic curtain.  These are hand made to your specifications and can be any size or shape. See HERE for more details. To see a really remarkable installation, click HERE
Here’s a short movie that shows  what to expect.  The board is 2’ by 3’ and is broken up into three  sections. The left third is 10 stars per square foot.  The middle third is 7 stars per square foot and the right third is 3 stars per square foot:

Another view of Keith Robinson’s starfield/cove lighting  combination. He used one X20-75 fitted with a blue twinkle wheel for  the stars and blue and white led rope for the cove around the  starfield. Click to enlarge.

                                                            For a professional system  you will need:

                                                                                                                  The light source
For a home theater or small venue, use a LED10W-6C/T illuminator.  For a larger venue or a brighter room, use a LED40W-DMX-6C/T/D .  It is approximately three times brighter Any of these will do a ceiling of between 175 and 400 square feet.  For those that want the very best, we  offer the 96w  SMD LED illuminator.  It will make any project  POP!
                                                                                                               Fiber Optic  Cable
You will need end emitting fiber optic cable of various lengths to cover your ceiling. We even offer a special cable designed for star ceilings-Starpac  48.  Since these systems are designed for each application, just  give us a call at (210) 590-5196 and we’ll be happy to help you. If you’re  putting your star ceiling in a home theater, you might think about adding a few LED  Bulbs.  With their cool color temperature, they make the room look like there is a full moon flooding the room with light.  A  pretty cool effect for a star ceiling! Another nice effect is a shimmering  galaxy or shooting star in your star ceiling.  This effect comes from our our LED Twinkle  Sky Kit.  For a quick and easy star ceiling effect, click here!

                                          For a smaller  system or where access to the starfield is limited
lFor something like a child’s room, where access is limited or where heat will  be a problem, the LED Twinkle  Sky kit will do fine. They don’t twinkle like the professional system, but it has a very calming effect.  For a little larger system, take a look at LED10W-6C/T Star Kit
There are other systems that can be  used for a simulated starfield; take a look at the DIY  page
