Vaonis Vespera Smart Telescope
The Vespera Smart Telescope: Small but Mighty!
The Vespera Smart Telescope from Vaonis is the perfect combination of telescope and camera. This compact observation system is smart and fully automated, making the wonders of the night sky incredibly accessible. Vaonis has designed a unique quadruplet 50 mm lens, formed by two groups of two lenses made of lanthanum glass. These optics are one of the most powerful on the market with zero distortion, zero chromatic aberration, and zero astigmatism. You'll have crisp views of your favorite objects delivered directly to your mobile device! With the Vespera you can explore and observe the night sky, take celestial images, learn about the Cosmos, and share your discoveries with family and friends all in one place!
Whether you are in the middle of the wilderness or in the comfort of your own living room, the Vespera will transport you to the stars. Even light pollution is a thing of the past with this smart scope, so city dwellers can connect with the stars no matter the sky conditions. Using this fully integrated sky observation system, you will be able to take ultra-HD images using the Sony sensor and Quadruplet APO refractor design. Vaonis has equipped this telescope with auto-initialization, auto-alignment, auto-tracking, and auto-focusing with its Star Field Recognition technology. Let the Vespera Smart telescope take you on a journey through the night sky!
Revolutionize Your Observation Experience
Voanis has incorporated several exciting features into the Vespera telescope. These include the ability to take crisp, clear images and share those discoveries, as well as the ability to have a completely self-contained smart telescope that doesn't need any additional accessories. This means you can spend more time observing and exploring the many features of the Singularity app, and less time setting up your system. Learn more about the Vespera features below!
With the Vespera, you can take astonishing celestial images with the touch of a button. It has never been so easy to capture deep-sky images and immortalize galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, and much more, which you can then share on your social media or frame for your wall. Vaonis has designed the Vespera telescope with the Sony IMX462 back-illuminated CMOS sensor with a 1/2.8 format, a 2.9um pixel size, and a 1290 x 1080 resolution. In addition to this high sensitivity sensor, Vaonis has included their own electronics to ensure heat management is optimal. Within the Vaonis app, you can access manual image processing and have your choice of composition and framing. You can even reveal the unseen with the Vespera's image live stacking technology which will allow you to see what is normally invisible to our eyes.
With CovalENS, the first "panorama mode" ever embedded into a telescope, you can explore a much larger area of the sky than your instrument's original field of view, creating a panorama of the universe. With Vespera Mosaic mode and CovalENS, you have a wider window into the universe and more opportunities to capture unique images. There are some objects or groups of objects that are larger than other deep sky objects, making it difficult to see their entirety. An example of this is the Great Andromeda Galaxy, measuring about 3-deg at its longest dimension. This is 6x larger than the full Moon! The Mosaic mode extends the field of view of the Vespera Smart telescope for more complete images of large deep sky objects, better exploration of large nebulas, to obtain sets of nebulas in the same view, and to capture small asterisms or groups of a stars, like the Kemble's Cascade (Camelopardalis constellation). The maximum field of view at the sensor proportions is 3.2-degrees x 1.8-degrees, and there is an increased resolution, up to 8.2 megapixels with the Mosaic Mode. The mosaic framing is defined in relation to the north/south (EQ) sky orientation. This means you will not have to depend on the orientation of objects in the field of view. You can also benefit from the "dithering" effect, which reduces the impact of inherent sensor defects (noise and hot pixels), allowing for better quality images.
Share your Discoveries!
The Vaonis Vespera telescope redefines the observation experience. With this innovative telescope, you can watch the stars through the mobile app. What makes the Vespera truly special is the ability to share your celestial adventures with others. You can connect up to five mobile devices to your Vespera station with the multi-user mode and then share your discoveries in Ultra-HD on different social media platforms. The Vespera helps you share your passion and the vastness of the Universe with those you care about!
Automation At It's Finest
The Vespera Smart telescope boasts five automated features that will make your observation session a breeze! The first is auto-initialization. The Vespera will use your mobile's GPS, star pattern recognition, and astrometry to calibrate itself. Once your device is set up, the telescope will be ready in less than 5 minutes. The next is auto-alignment. The Vespera observation station uses GoTo technology, and once you select a target in the app or enter celestial coordinates, the body of the scope will move and point to the object automatically. The third is auto-tracking. Driven by a motor and controlled by the integrated computer, the Vespera will automatically track your celestial object and compensate for the Earth's rotation. The final automated feature is auto-focus. The Vespera is one of the only smart telescopes on the market to utilize autofocusing, so you will no longer need to manually intervene to make sure your photos are as sharp as possible.
The Vaonis App
The free Vaonis app, Singularity, acts as the control room for your Vespera Smart Telescope. This is where you decide every action you would like the Vespera to take. The app is very intuitive and user-friendly, so you do not have to worry about a steep learning curve. You can easily access any stellar object within the SIngularity's catalog of 200+ objects, including planets like Jupiter and Saturn. Additionally, you will get personalized observation recommendations based on geolocation and the astronomical calendar. Using this information, Singularity also gives you the ability to thoroughly and easily plan out your evening session based on when your favored objects will be visible. This is also the place where you can learn about the objects you observe because the Singularity app is full of educational content to help make the experience more interactive and exciting. Once you start up your Vespera telescope, Singularity will guide you each step of the way. This mobile app is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
Includes a Small Tripod
To complete your observation experience, Vaonis has included a small tripod with the Vespera observation station. This small yet sturdy tripod connects to your telescope using a standard 3/8-16 UNC thread. Not only will this tripod enable you to use the Vespera right out of the box, but it also comes with convenient leveling feet, so you can make adjustments to accommodate whatever surface you're looking to place your Vespera telescope on.
