    Unistellar eQuinox Smart Telescope Features

    The Unistellar eVscope eQuinox smart telescope makes viewing and sharing your view of galaxies, comets, and nebulae quick and easy. This advanced smart telescope has the power to show you dim and distant opbjects, and produces results that are on par with more complex astrophotography camera setups.

    The best part is the Unistellar eQuinox does this without the steep learning curve. This smart telescope is controlled with your phone or tablet, with easy-to-use apps available for both iOS and Android. The app handles all the difficult calculations and calibrations on its own, meaning you'll be set up and photographing the wonders of the universe in no time! The Unistellar eQuinox has set the standard for user-friendly telescopes.

    The telescope's WiFi lets you escape the bugs and weather while you (and up to 9 other devices) view the sky from the comfort of your home, vehicle or tent. Advanced light polution filtering allows amazingly detaield views from your own backyard. Its 12-hour battery life and super-portability means you can also bring it with you on your next adventure.

    The eQuinox is more than just for fun, it a high-precision scientific tool thatthat can interface with the SETI Institute to aid in detecting earth-bound asteroids. The included Unistellar Network membership enables you to collect and submit space data and to get answers to your questions.

    Enhanced Vision Brings Out The Details Without The Wait

    Unistellar's Enhanced Vision increases the sensitivity of this smart telescope to about 100x the power of a regular telescope. This patented and proprietary technology allows you to view even the faintest opbjects in real time, without waititng for long exposure times. This live stacking of images allow you to see galaxies, nebulae, and comets in their full glory in as few as a few seconds, with details and colors that usually take minutes to hours to capture. The eVscope eQuinox intelligent telescope will automatically adjust captures for their optimal viewing, without the need for manual input.

    Autonomous Pointing

    The eQuinox boasts simple and accurate pointing and tracking of objects in the sky. The Autonomous Field Detection system uses the stars in the sky to automatically determine where the telescope is pointed, allowing it to accurately point at and follow any of the 5,000+ onjects in its database, keeping them centered as the earth rotates. This video from Unistellar shows you how easy it is to find ojects in the sky with the eQuinox smart telescope.

    Intelligent Light Pollution Reduction

    Your images will automatically be optimized to mitigate the unwanted effects of light pollution. These advanced light pollution filters help bring out the details and color of distant objects, allowing you to get great results, even if you're located in the city.

I have owned 6” and 8” SCT telescopes and a 14” Dobsonian, but the Unistellar eQuinox had me jumping for joy. I charged it on its arrival and took it outside my condo that night in the suburbs. It was so easy to turn on, align, check collimation, focus, and take a dark frame. I was amazed it only took 5 minutes. The software was easy to use and the connection to my iPad was stable even though I operated it from the warmth of my living room for half the cold night. The first thing I looked at was Orion’s Great Nebula. It was amazing in the Live View and absolutely outstanding in the Enhanced Vision mode. I have viewed numerous objects thus far and am loving astronomy more than I ever have. I even viewed a dim comet and can hardly wait for the next “good” comet. In addition to the above, this scope is design perfection. Only a tripod and the mount + scope parts. The tripod is a work of art as is the scope. They are also highly functional I have not been able to view any planets, but Uranus was pretty great and at least I was sure I was looking at it since this scope always centers the object it slews too. I can hardly wait to try it on Saturn or Jupiter, but I am sure I will like them, but still use my SCTs to view them I love this telescope and have the highest customer satisfaction I have ever had. I do not know anyone at Unistellar or OPT and am not being paid by anyone. This product deserves this review. There may be some astrophotographers that may dislike this scope, but I can look at new objects after every 5 minutes in the comfort of my home and not spend a lot of time assembling parts and hooking up wires. That being said, serious astrophotographers are amazing and I for one love their monumental efforts at producing the most beautiful and awesome displays of our incredible universe.

Astro photo on day one!

I was amazed how much I was able to do on the first night. After several nights of clear skies I'm trying more difficult targets with very nice results.

Amazing! A testament to what technology can achieve…

The EVscope Equinox is remarkable! Easy to set up, no messy wires and all self contained. I was able to snap my first picture 15 mins after taking the scope out to cool to ambient temperature. The pictures are amazing, given the heavily light polluted skies that sadly affect my location. Yes, it is not the purist thing to do or say but the satisfaction of being able to see the Horsehead nebula, even if indirectly, is incredible. Seeing the spiral arms of M33 slowly show up was amazing. I even glimpsed the core of M31 that barely makes it above the northern horizon here in Sydney, Australia. Just the one small downside, nothing that cannot be easily resolved, however there was no Australian power pin included with the power adaptor. We also love the Evscope down under, Unistellar people :) I do not intend to get rid of any of my other scopes, they will still be used as often as possible, however the Equinox will be my traveling Astronomy companion quite regularly. I absolutely recommend it, even for hardcore purists…

Exceeded My Expectations

Unistellar's eQuinox telescope has been a game changer for me. The OPT sales staff was very helpful in telephone calls as I weighed my purchase decision. After placing my order, my telescope arrived in 5 days with no issues. Set up was easy. Both the User Guide and Quick Start Guide were thorough. The multiple Unistellar YouTube videos online were also very helpful. I contacted Unistellar support for one minor technical issue (which was operator error on my part) and got a quick email response. I’ve now had two very successful viewing sessions and I've captured over a dozen Deep Sky Object (DSO) images, including inspiring images of the Omega nebula, the Eagle nebula, the Hercules globular cluster, the Trifid Nebula, and others. I’ve had a 8” Celestron Nexstar Evolution HD for four years, and although I’ve enjoyed terrific lunar and planetary viewing, I've had virtually no success in viewing DSOs in my light-polluted backyard with the Celestron. The Unistellar eQuinox has dramatically changed that and exceeded my expectations. Light pollution is no longer a problem in capturing DSOs. From reading reviews on other websites, I know the Unistellar app was initially plagued with frequent dropping out issues, but apparently those early issues have been resolved. I've not experienced any drops. For me the the purchase price has already been worth it. Looking forward to my future viewing sessions with the eQuinox.

Scope is very impressive at seeing through light pollution. Setup out of the box had more issues than expected but worked through them. Still regretting Unistellar removed the eyepiece.

Best new telescope

I just purchased my new Unistellar eQuniox smart telescope. I am a very novice amateur and have owned a Celestron 5inch next star . I really like the eQuinox as it does not require any advanced skills in order to image and photograph deep sky objects….You need to spend a little time with aligning and adjusting the collimation. My buying experience was amazing through OPT
