The eVscope was designed to make astronomy available to everyone. User-friendly features and smart technology make it one of the easiest telescopes to use, and powerful optics and capabilities allow for rich, immersive skygazing experiences.
Our smart telescope can locate objects in the night sky automatically, making it easy to find even hard-to-spot objects, and the dedicated app lets users control the telescope while giving stargazers information about their targets. Up to 10 people can connect to the eVscope at the same time, making it ideal for group viewing. The eVscope is also ideal for urban stargazing because its sophisticated optics compensate for light pollution, bringing dim objects into view even under less-than-ideal conditions.
Unistellar’s citizen science program offers all users the chance to join an active community of close to 10,000 amateur astronomers worldwide who work hand-in-hand with scientists to make important observations. Whether it’s helping defend Earth from potentially hazardous asteroids or spotting exoplanets, everyone has the chance to contribute to our knowledge of space while exploring the night sky.
“I’ve been thinking about how best to share data from observations with my online students. When trying to convey the nature of science and how it works, I think it is as important to show the process and the negative detections as well as the positive ones. I have found that many of my students are so afraid of ‘failing’ at science, but that is the point of science. [It’s about] trying to learn what does and doesn’t work.”

“With the help of automation and modern programming, the Unistellar telescope allows you to take a look at celestial objects without much effort. You can just select from several options of galaxies, clusters, stars, moons and planets, and then the telescope just automatically points to it. I believe this makes for a very exhilarating and thrilling experience for anyone delving into stargazing for the first time. Plus, it has the benefit of letting you take pictures of whatever you’re viewing. So, some students could potentially use this feature for their projects.”
