Vaonis STELLINA Smart Telescope

 

The STELLINA from Vaonis is what we get when innovation meets automation. Never has astrophotography been so easy to get into before this mobile observation station. Simple enough for children to understand, yet full of capabilities that will impress seasoned astronomers, the STELLINA smart telescope is a perfect fit for all levels of experience.

Completely controlled through the sleek and intuitive smartphone application, “Stellinapp,” knowing nothing about the night sky is not a problem.  The app is equipped with an extensive catalogue of deep-sky objects and recommendations, real-time image stacking and processing, and full GoTo functionality. Explore the universe with ease and in style with the STELLINA.

The Immediate Astrophotographer

Your path to the universe just got easier with this portable astrophotography system. Designed for simplicity and a user-friendly experience from the start, the STELLINA will get you exploring and imaging the deep sky in less than 5 minutes. Alignment, focus, target acquisition, tracking, and more, STELLINA automates it all! Choose from a list of recommended targets for your location, and this telescope will take care of the rest. It’s really that simple.

The longstanding barriers of entry into astrophotography—no matter how slight they might be--have been broken down by the STELLINA. Now everybody can be a part of this incredible hobby.

Astrophotography Made Easy

The Stellinapp smartphone application is a dream come true for astronomers around the world. Watch your incoming photos be processed and stacked as they come in, optimizing for the best possible clarity of your target while also giving you options to alter the images if desired. You won’t need to take the time deciding which object is available to image, either.

Vaonis Stellina Stellinapp Functions

 

Thanks to the app’s smart recommendations based on your location and the automated weather monitor, the best possible targets are listed for you with the time needed to image them! Simply choose which target you like the most and the automatic GoTo functionality will bring you right to it. Alignment, focus, tracking, and everything else needed for proper astrophotography is built right into the STELLINA.

Gone are the longstanding barriers to astrophotography—no matter how minor they may be. Anybody from all age groups, from elementary to the elite can now capture the cosmos in a matter of minutes and spread these wonders to the world. And one of the best things about this app is that all images taken can be saved directly to your phone once you finish!

A Made-to-Measure Tripod

The perfect systems wouldn’t be complete without the perfect tripod. Vaonis has partnered with the legendary Gitzo tripod manufacturer to create a custom-designed tripod fit for the STELLINA. Inspired by Gitzo’s “Systematic” range of tripods, some of the world’s strongest and most stable tripods, the GT3520S-VS model was built from the ground up to be STELLINA's ideal partner.

Tripod

 

The Gitzo Series 3 Systematic Tripod is an exceptional carbon fiber tripod combining minimal weight with incredible stability to bring out the best in STELLINA's performance. This ultra-portable tripod is easy to carry anywhere you want to go and can be customized in a few areas including the feet and mount plate.

Sony Sensor Made for Imaging

Just like the rest of the system, STELLINA's camera sensor is engineered with astrophotography in mind. Sony's IMX 178 sensor is a 6.4 MP chip with an extremely high resolution of 3086 x 2076 pixels. The creators at Vaonis want to make sure that every image that comes out of the STELLINA is guaranteed to look crisp even when blown up to poster size or when a small section is cropped.

On top of that, the sensor itself has a light pollution, or city light suppression (CLS), filter built onto the front. Every astronomer is keenly aware of how much an issue light pollution has become in the modern age, and this is one major factor to combat the encroaching light.

Hours of Automated Imaging

Image for as long as you can stay awake with the portable and rechargeable battery. Once the sun goes down, this 10,000mAh battery will last for up to 5 hours of active use before requiring a recharge, which is more than enough time to get some incredible images for the night. Invite your friends and family to the imaging session for an impromptu star party, and revel in the fact that one of the most complex hobbies in the world can be simply controlled by your fingertips.
