In its review of the new Unistellar eVscope eQuinox, BGR found it to be a “stunning smart telescope lets your iPhone peer into deep space.” The in-depth review highlighted:
- Ease of Use: “Despite how powerful it is, this telescope is astoundingly easy to use. It is rare to come across such a sophisticated piece of professional-grade equipment that has no barrier to entry. Any novice can experience in minutes what would take even the most accomplished astronomer an hour or more to observe with conventional equipment.”
- App Recommendations: “…if you let the app guide you to recommended deep-space objects, that’s when the fun really begins. Find a pitch-black area on a clear night and let the app recommend the best things to see. If you’re patient and leave the telescope in place for long exposures after focusing perfectly, you’ll be blown away by what you see.”
- “Stunning” imagery: “Seeing dim objects with conventional telescopes — even expensive ones — can be difficult and time-consuming. The eVscope eQuinox, on the other hand, is perfect for viewing things like nebulae and galaxies. The eQuinox’s low-light sensor and image stacking tech produce more color and detail than comparable telescopes. It also has other software features that enhance images, such as smart light pollution reduction.”
- Citizen science: “It’s also important to bear in mind that the eVscope eQuinox is capable of so much more than just observation. You can make real, meaningful contributions to the space science community through Unistellar’s citizen science programs.”
- And much more.
