Discover the beauty and secrets of the Universe

The low-light, high-resolution sensor captures light from objects located millions of light-years from Earth, and delivers pin-sharp image definition and a wide field of view. Using cutting-edge technologies (Enhanced Vision and Super Resolution), the eVscope 2 reveals deep-sky objects in seconds and allows observers to enjoy, with crisp details, colossal space objects like the majestic Orion nebula.

Out-of-this-world observing experience in partnership with Nikon

A defining feature of the eVscope 2 is the electronic eyepiece, developed by Nikon: the combination of a best-in-class micro OLED screen, designed to enhance contrast and deliver a perfect black image, and a sophisticated array of lenses, sourced from Nikon’s expert optical labs. The new eyepiece delivers a captivating, immersive observation with rich contrast, with better observing comfort and eye-relief.

Discover the eVscope 2

Enhanced Vision - 100x more powerful than a regular telescope

Enhanced Vision is a patented proprietary technology that allows a live observation of faint objects thanks to the live accumulation of the light we receive from them. Galaxies, nebulae and comets finally become visible, colourful and detailed.

Depending on the observing conditions (light pollution, moon phase, weather, etc…) and the objects you are pointing at, it can take from a few seconds to several tens of seconds for you to start seeing the beautiful colours and shapes of galaxies and nebulae normally invisible, even through the eyepiece of a large conventional telescope.

Autonomous Field Detection - smartest, most accurate autonomous pointing-and-tracking software in its class

The eVscope 2 ensures more time exploring space and less time setting up or calibrating. Our system instantly recognizes the objects in its field of view by comparing what it sees with a coordinates database of tens of millions of stars. This allows the eVscope 2 automated tracking and pointing system to be extremely accurate and easy to use, making it by far the most user-friendly telescope on the market.

Autonomous Field Detection also allows it to inform you about what you are observing (distance from the Earth, etc.).

Smart Light Pollution Reduction - urban space-lovers to finally enjoy astronomy.

Light pollution renders celestial objects invisible to the human eye and conventional ‘direct-view’ telescopes, because the human brain cannot filter, process and prioritize light sources. Even cameras and computers are challenged by light pollution, which creates “noise” on images, blurs objects and distorts shapes. It can be challenging or impossible to create crisp, beautiful images when you are faced with light pollution. 

Unistellar’s proprietary software mitigates the impact of light pollution and allows for distant objects to be observed in crisp detail, even from bright inner-city environments. For each observation, Unistellar’s technology swiftly identifies background light, then automatically filters and removes this unwanted light, delivering the best possible image parameters and results. Users benefit from more precise images with better contrasts and colors, regardless of the level of brightness of the sky (urban light pollution, moonlight).

Powerful scientific device with a global community of observers

Because the eVscope 2 can be used to conduct valuable space science, with every new user comes a new Space Explorer, fueling Unistellar’s evermore powerful global array of connected telescopes, each capable of delivering scientifically valuable observations. Partnering up with astronomers from the SETI Institute and other institutions, Unistellar Explorers can protect Earth by detecting a hazardous asteroid, discover and confirm the existence of a hot Jupiter around a distant star, or even uncover the mysteries of a comet or supernova.

As part of the Unistellar Network – the first global community of connected telescope users, 5 000 strong and counting – users get to exchange in dialogue with professional astronomers and space aficionados. Hear about projections, plan observations, get help capturing a target, and receive actionable tips for collecting and submitting data. Learn about light curves and data modelling, have their observations confirmed, and see their data put into action through charts, visuals and even 3D prints.

A dedicated app, mission control for your outer space explorations

With the push of a button and tap of the app, your eVscope 2 recommends the most spectacular targets and launches into deep-space observations, in minutes.

With a catalogue of over 5 000 objects to choose from, use the app to learn about and identify cosmic objects, including which objects are ideal for viewing from your location. Save and share your experience with others – in person or virtually – with your connected tech.

The Unistellar app provides captivating educational content and automates your observing experience, so that novices can enjoy their device right away. The app also offers manual controls for advanced users.

Bespoke transportation backpack

Carefully designed to fit snuggly to the eVscope 2, and of a similar size to a 50L hiking backpack, a the Unistellar backpack makes it extremely easily to transport both the eVscope 2 and its tripod, allowing astronomy to become nomadic.

The backpack is made of tough reinforced fabric, and carefully padded with high-density foam to protect the telescope from any shock. It also includes a removable rain shield.

Zygo Interferometer Testing For ED Refractor Telescopes!

We are extremely pleased to announce our Zygo Interferometer is now installed and ready for use! Our experienced staff can test refractor lenses up to 120mm aperture and provide a comprehensive 2 page report showing the optical quality and Strehl ratio, plus much more information. We are using the very latest Zygo MX software to provide a more detailed report compared to other standard reports.

 

The interferometer is essentially a measuring instrument. Within the interferometer is a calibrated laser that is pointed through the optical test surface, then onto a high quality reference sphere, then back through the test subject then to an internal camera which gives us the measurement on the screen. From this, we can adjust the position of the test optic and the reference sphere to obtain a perfectly calibrated system. The more central the laser to the test optic and then on return, the better and more accurate reading and measurement we can take. This takes a lot of adjustment to get the best results from the optical surface. Once the measurement has been taken, we are provided with a series of results that show the optical quality of the surface plus other information. Continue reading for an explanation of the individual values and you can also see a test report that was done on one of our RVO Horizon 60 OTAs. 

We are offering certain telescopes with a Zygo test at an extra cost. Mainly ED doublets and triplets. All available telescopes with a Zygo test report are listed here. Just select Zygo Test Report from the drop down box at the top of the listing and we will test the optics in house and provide a full 2 page report with your scope. This will show you the optical quality of your telescope optics. We can also offer this service on your refractor telescope. Please get in touch for more details about this. 

At Rother Valley Optics, one thing we pride ourselves on is customer service and quality of our equipment. When we test your telescope, we will ensure that it is of the highest quality otherwise, we will reject the scope under our strict quality control and test another model for your peace of mind. One of the main values to look at when testing a refractor is the Strehl ratio. The higher this number, the higher quality lens you have. At Rother Valley Optics, we will guarantee the highest possible Strehl ratio for your telescope.  We will aim to provide 0.95 Strehl or higher on Takahashi, RVO Horizon, William Optics and many more! Generally, the higher the Strehl ratio, the lower the Astigmatism and Coma meaning a better image quality from your instrument. 

Other measurements such as the PV and RMS are important too. With these measurements, the lower the number the better as it shows less curvature on the lens. The flatter an optical lens, the better it will perform. The PV rating (Peak To Valley) is a measurement from the highest point (Peak) to the lowest point (Valley). From this we get the RMS (Root, Mean, Square). This is a similar figure to the PV and measured exactly the same way. The RMS is basically an average height difference from the PV so again, the lower the better. As you can see form the example below, we measured an RMS of just 0.027 wave which is a very good value.

We also measure the Power with our systems which is essentially the error from the reference sphere to the test optic. The reference sphere we use on our system is a very high quality sphere so the closer to zero the Power, the less error between the 2 elements thus ensuring a higher quality optical surface. 

You will also see some more values such as Astigmatism and Coma. Again, these are measured by the interferometer when we take measurements of the optical surface after adjustment. These are values which ideally would be at 0 but as our test optics are all curved lenses, there will always be astigmatism and coma present. The lower the number, the less of these aberations you will effectively see but with most refractors, you can buy field flatteners which will compensate for the coma anyway. The astigmatisms value is explaining the error between the symmetrical curvature of the lens. Basically, no lens will be perfectly symmetrical, the lower the astigmatism, the more symmetrical the lens surface is. 

Once the Zygo test report has been completed, the optical alignment is thoroughly tested and tuned to ensure they are spot on before they leave us. 

All available telescopes are on the website at the link below and ones we've tested already that are available straight away are also listed.

Here is an example of the test what we provide. This was a test on one of our Horizon 60 ED OTA's.
