Star Field Basics
A fiber optic star field is a project that you can do yourself and look great in any home theater. I installed my star field into 2x2 drop ceiling panels and used a star template to represent the actual constellations! Each star point is a single fiber optic cable which attaches to an illuminator which sends the light down the cable and it emits out the end as a star. Illuminators allow the stars to twinkle, change colors, and even create shooting stars.
