Many of us are curious to see the mysteries of the Universe

Unfortunately most objects are too faint to be seen in a conventional telescope

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, comets directly through the eyepiece and in unparalleled colors and detail.  

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

eVscope Reviews

David K.
This is what I love about the eVscope: its simplicity. You setup the eVscope with its tripod, switch it on, connect to its Wi-Fi network, open the Unistellar app, align the eVscope (based on GPS coordinates and built-in stars map) and off you go.

The Unistellar eVscope is my 8th telescope, and it’s an amazing piece of technology. The telescope can do autonomous field detection in less than 30 seconds, even with a sky where only a few stars are visible because of light pollution.

This is a game-changer [...] the fact that it is networked will change, forever, the nature of amateur, and ultimately, professional astronomy.

The eVscope is awesome because you can carry it and you can see things as they really would look if you would have looked for a long time with a camera. It's everything you'd want in a telescope in one little package.

Enhanced Vision

100x more powerful than a regular telescope

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.

How easy is it to set-up and use?

We have designed the eVscope 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, weighting just 19.8lbs - 9Kg - including tripod, the eVscope is easy to transport during your observations. The telescope is 25.5 inches tall and 9 inches wide (65cm and 23cm) 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 the shape and colors of many galaxies and nebulae.

Can the eVscope 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 fainter.

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, we do not plan on releasing nor recommending camera adapters for the eVscope.
