Product Details


    Unprecedented power and simplicity. Your journey to wonder and discovery starts here.

    Unistellar eVscope's proprietary Enhanced Vision and Automated Field Detection technologies offer unmatched power and accuracy in a compact, user-friendly telescope to reveal galaxies, nebulae, and comets directly through the eyepiece and in unparalleled colors and detail.

    In partnership with the SETI Institute, leverage your eVscope's power and join their community of thousands of users to witness valuable astronomical events like supernovae, or exoplanet transits, and add your contribution to science.

    Enhanced Vision

    At 100 times more powerful than a regular telescope, Unistellar's Enhanced Vision is patented proprietary technology that allows a live observation of faint objects. This is due to the live accumulation of the light received from the objects. Galaxies, nebulae, and comets finally become visible, colorful, and detailed.

    Depending on observing conditions (light pollution, moon phase, weather, etc…) and the objects you are pointing toward, it can take from a few seconds to several tens of seconds for you to start seeing the beautiful colors and shapes of galaxies and nebulae normally invisible, even through the eyepiece of a large conventional telescope.

    Autonomous Field Detection

    Simple and accurate pointing and tracking make this telescope incredibly easy to use.

    This system instantly recognizes the objects in its field of view, by comparing what it sees with a coordinates database of tens of millions of stars. This allows its automated tracking and pointing system to be extremely accurate and easy to use, making it by far the most user-friendly telescope on the market.

    The Autonomous Field Detection system also allows it to inform you about what you are observing (distance from the Earth, etc.).

    Compact and Lightweight

    Light amplification means that a small telescope can also be powerful without putting on too much weight. This telescope is so small that you can carry it in a backpack! The eVscope is a perfect grab and go telescope.

    Contribute to Space Science

    The power of Enhanced Vision and the accuracy of Autonomous Field Detection also make the eVscope a valuable tool to scientists. In partnership with the SETI Institute, connect your eVscope to a network of thousands of eVscope owners around the world and help scientists all the while seeing special astronomical events like exoplanet transits or NEA passing. See this live, through your eVscope, while they are happening!


    Unistellar's Enhanced Vision is a patent-pending technology that is based on the accumulation of light over short periods of time using a low light sensor, as well as on their proprietary algorithms of image processing that run on an on-board calculation module. The resulting amplified image is projected at infinite focus into the eye of the observer with an extremely high contrast ratio, creating a genuine and live experience of sky observation. Sensor settings and image processing parameters are automatically adjusted.

    Autonomous Field Detection for a Smart Turn-key Telescope

    The Autonomous Field Detection (AFD) software is a patent-pending, high-accuracy, sky-recognition, and telescope-orientation technology. It automatically detects stars in the field-of-view and identifies its pointing direction by a comparison with a 20 million star coordinates database. Coupled with magneto-accelerometers and with a motorized mount, AFD allows the eVscope to automatically align with celestial coordinates and accurately pinpoint and identify any object in the sky. Anytime, users can get contextual information about many of the pointed objects on their smartphone.

    How easy is it to set-up and use?

    This scope was designed to be very user-friendly. Even for first-time users, it typically takes less than 10 minutes to get the eVscope set-up and pointing towards celestial objects. There is no need for constellations knowledge nor polar star alignment. Simply set up the tripod, mount the telescope, and launch the app. It's that simple.

    Can it be easily transported?

    Yes, weighing just 19.8-pounds (9 Kg) including tripod, the eVscope is easy to transport to and from your observation sites. The telescope is 25.5-inches tall and 9-inches wide (65 cm and 23 cm), and the tripod is also compact with extendable legs.

    What can I see with the eVscope?

    Thanks to the Enhanced Vision, the eVscope allows you to observe comets, star clusters, asteroids, supernovae, and even to see the shape and colors of many galaxies and nebulae.

    Can it be used to observe the Moon and the planets of the Solar System?

    Yes! The eVscope will allow you to see the moon and the planets, like Jupiter and Saturn for example. However, these objects being very bright, the eVscope will not allow you to see them better than in a classical telescope. With the exception of Neptune and Uranus (or even Pluto), that are very far, and therefore quite faint.

    Can I download the images of the astronomical objects I observe with the telescope, on my smartphone/computer?

    Yes, the colorful images of the galaxies and nebulae that you observed through the eVscope are readily available on your smartphone. Any image you save will be stored in our app and copied in your smartphone picture gallery. It can then easily be shared with your friends - or on your social media profiles - and transferred to your computer.

    Can I use a camera adapter / adapt a DSLR camera to the eVscope?

    The eVscope has been designed to provide all the functionalities required to view colorful images of galaxies and nebulae, all in a compact and lightweight telescope, and directly through the eyepiece. Images are saved on the smartphone and can easily be transferred onto a computer. At the present time, they do not plan on releasing nor recommending camera adapters for the eVscope.

Makes deep sky observing easy and enjoyable. Still want to image for hours and hours? Stack 100's of images and spend countless hours photo editing? Beyond guest. As for me I've got the eVscope and I'm loving it.

Amazing technology

As a veteran of astrology and astrophotography I had serious doubts about this unit. I purchased thinking it would be a great device to take out camping with me in remote areas. I was pleasantly surprised that it was much more than that. The price tag is large but the learning curve is so small it greatly outweighs the cost for anyone looking to get into astronomy and photography. This device however is not for viewing planets so do not have those expectations going in. but it does a really decent level of work at viewing deeper space than most off the shelf telescopes at that price. The app makes it very intuitive for new users and my wife never having used a telescope was able to set it up and start viewing M83 within 30 minutes. A great product to inspire the next generation of onlookers. Also get the back pack it is perfect for traveling with this scope and stand.

Great Experience

Allen and Angel were very helpful! Delivery was quick and I enjoy using the eVscope. My only issue was that I did not receive the complimentary gloves and water bottle that came with the eVscope purchase. I sent an email wondering why they did not arrive and the email remains unanswered.
