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, colorful 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 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

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 Unistellar's eVscope 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.

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

Compact and Lightweight

The eVscope fits in a backpack

Light amplification means that a small telescope can also be powerful. Our 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

Join the eVscope community

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, live, through your eVscope, while they are happening. It's simple.

So, how does this work?

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 our 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.
