Product Details

  • SEE THE MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE IN REAL TIME WITH THE EVSCOPE 2

    Unistellar’s smart telescope design makes it possible for stargazers around the world to explore the wonders of the Universe from their backyards (even in light polluted skies), without prior experience.

    Powered by Unistellar’s proprietary technologies (Enhanced Vision, Automated Field Detection, Light Pollution Reduction), the eVscope 2 is the most powerful consumer space instrument and offers a new user-friendly experience of deep-sky exploration. With unmatched speed and accuracy, the telescope reveals galaxies, nebulae, comets and other celestial objects millions of light-years away with unparalleled colors and details – even from the heart of a city.

    New hobbyists can discover astronomy and grow their skills with an outstanding yet user-friendly device, while advanced astronomers benefit from a portable device that can quickly hop from one object to the next as well as collect valuable scientific data that help mankind’s understanding of space. Outreach professionals and educators can delight audiences with fast, sharp and colorful views of the Universe.

    Enhanced Vision

    Enhanced Vision is patented proprietary technology that allows a live observation of faint objects thanks to the live accumulation of the light we receive from them. Galaxies, nebulae and comets finally become visible, colourful and detailed.

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

    Autonomous Field Detection

    The eVscope 2 ensures more time exploring space and less time setting up or calibrating. Our 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 the eVscope 2 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 2 is a perfect grab and go telescope.

    Smart Light Pollution Reduction

    Light pollution renders celestial objects invisible to the human eye and conventional ‘direct-view’ telescopes, because the human brain cannot filter, process and prioritize light sources. Even cameras and computers are challenged by light pollution, which creates “noise” on images, blurs objects and distorts shapes. It can be challenging or impossible to create crisp, beautiful images when you are faced with light pollution.

    Unistellar’s proprietary software mitigates the impact of light pollution and allows for distant objects to be observed in crisp detail, even from bright inner-city environments. For each observation, Unistellar’s technology swiftly identifies background light, then automatically filters and removes this unwanted light, delivering the best possible image parameters and results. Users benefit from more precise images with better contrasts and colors, regardless of the level of brightness of the sky (urban light pollution, moonlight).

    Dedicated App

    With the push of a button and tap of the app, your eVscope 2 recommends the most spectacular targets and launches into deep-space observations, in minutes.

    With a catalogue of over 5 000 objects to choose from, use the app to learn about and identify cosmic objects, including which objects are ideal for viewing from your location. Save and share your experience with others – in person or virtually – with your connected tech.

    The Unistellar app provides captivating educational content and automates your observing experience, so that novices can enjoy their device right away. The app also offers manual controls for advanced users.

    Bespoke Transportation Backpack

    Carefully designed to fit snuggly to the eVscope 2, and of a similar size to a 50L hiking backpack, a the Unistellar backpack makes it extremely easily to transport both the eVscope 2 and its tripod, allowing astronomy to become nomadic.

    The backpack is made of tough reinforced fabric, and carefully padded with high-density foam to protect the telescope from any shock. It also includes a removable rain shield.

    FAQs

    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 2 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. Watch this video from Unistellar with step-by-step instructions on how to optimize your observations.

    Can it be easily transported?

    Yes, weighing just 19.8-pounds (9 Kg) including tripod, the eVscope 2 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 2?

    Thanks to the Enhanced Vision, the eVscope 2 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 2 will allow you to see the moon and the planets, like Jupiter and Saturn for example. However, these objects being very bright, the eVscope 2 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 2 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 2?

    The eVscope 2has 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 2.
