Here is the batch solution application especially for fixed planetariums. "Shira Presenter" 8K Fulldome Player and "OpenSpace" Space Engine (MIT Licensed) were combined under a single program. 

Shira Dome Console !!!!

Shira Presenter included an excellent media playback infrastructure. This excellence is combined with OpenSpace's excellent control base. No code changes were made in the OpenSpace program. New features have been added for planetarium use thanks to the asset development and addition feature.
Shira Dome Console works in online mode by default. So a live internet connection is required.  When the program is run for the first time, approximately 6 GB of OpenSpace data will be downloaded.
It takes between 30-60 minutes depending on the internet speed.
Here are the key features of the Shira Dome Console software
