Exploring the universe has never been easier. Like the mobile apps using augmented reality to observe and identify constellations, the telescopes has taken amateur astronomy to the next level and are getting digitized.
Stellina is the first born of a new generation of telescopes designed by the company Vaonis. Smart and robotized, the telescope is not limited anymore to stargaze on his own the beautiful sky through an ocular. You can now observe and take picture of the stars at the touch of your fingertips. Once connected to your smartphone or tablet, the mobile app remotely controls the telescope. The screen
has replaced the ocular, giving much more comfort, details and content than the traditional telescopes, difficult to use and sometimes disappointing to watch through. Stellina telescope offers a brand new user experience, inviting stargazers to share their vision of the universe: by sharing literally the sight on their screen with friends or family, by sharing their pictures on social media as well as sharing their datas with scientists. It has never been so easy to explore, capture and share the Andromeda galaxy or the Orion nebula from the comfort of our home, making the universe accessible to everyone now.
