PrimaLuceLab is Here!

The EAGLE3 Has Landed at OPT

We are excited to announce the addition of PrimaLuceLab products to our ever-expanding inventory. This is another step we’re happy to take in bringing you the finest telescope equipment available.

Who is PrimaLuceLab?

Based in Northeastern Italy, this company has committed itself to the highest standards of product manufacturing and innovation. Equally important to their team is ease of accessibility for newcomers to astrophotography. At OPT we as well share these values.

What They Do

PrimaLuceLab manufactures a myriad of fine equipment, but what better time than now to highlight their flagship product? We present the newest iteration of the EAGLE now available here.

The EAGLE3

That is Filippo, the CEO, and Founder of PrimaLuceLab showcasing this incredible device. The EAGLE3 is designed to simplify and streamline the entire imaging process. If you’ve ever wondered how to get started in astrophotography or have been looking at imaging products, this is the complete package. PrimaLuceLab has packed the EAGLE full of everything you could need—and, of course, enables the addition of anything you could want.

Main Features for EAGLE 3

  • All-Encompassing Control Unit
    • Windows 10 System
    • SSD Storage
    • Full Device Connectivity
    • Dew Heater Control

  • 7 Power Out Ports for All Attachments

Well that all sounds fine and dandy, but you might be thinking: “I already have a Stellarmate” or, “I already have an ASIair” and it works just fine! Soo…

Why would I need the EAGLE instead?

It’s possible that you don’t need the EAGLE, and that your current system functions well enough for your purposes. But can it be better? Can your system run a little smoother? Would you prefer your processing to pick up speed? As an astrophotographer, your answers are probably yes.

The EAGLE has all of this and much, much more. No matter the astrophotography software desired, it can be installed to the onboard Windows 10 OS. No matter the attachment required for a setup, the EAGLE will accommodate and enable ease of control remotely. Not sure if your camera setup will be compatible with the EAGLE? Rest assured that any DSLR or CCD camera will adapt seamlessly with no additional driver installation required.

We’re glad you asked and would be concerned if you didn’t!

The short answer is: Yes.

The long answer is: Only if you want to optimize your astrophotography experience.
