In 2018, Vaonis introduced the world to its game-changing Stellina telescope, which the company touted as the “world’s first smart exploration station.” After amassing a considerable following with its first high-tech telescope, the startup has now announced its next offering with the even more compact and user-friendly Vespera Smart Telescope.
Part camera and part telescope, this cutting-edge smart device is built atop a small yet stable tripod and features a state-of-the-art quadruplet apochromatic refractor, a Starvis-tech-enabled Sony IMX462 sensor, a 200mm focal length, and a 50mm aperture. Incredibly travel friendly and sold with an included carrying case, the Vespera’s camera automatically links to smartphones or tablets via a custom-designed app, allowing users to take, record, and share photographs of their planetary and extraterrestrial discoveries, or to punch in coordinates to have Vespera automatically hone in on a specific constellation, star, or planetary body. IP43-rated for water protection, the Vaonis Vespera is available for preorder now, with deliveries scheduled to commence in the Spring of 2022, and pre-sale pricing set at $1,499.
