With the eVscope eQuinox—the world’s newest, most powerful digital telescope—you can enjoy the beauty of deep space, protect the planet against near-earth asteroids, conduct hands-on science, and so much more. All with one smart, fast, portable, connected device. 

No advanced training is required to begin your eQuinox outer space adventure. Novices and pros alike can grow their space discoveries and science skills, using one powerful, portable smart device.

Experience the beauty of outer space

Thanks to live light accumulation, the eVscope eQuinox reveals in seconds galaxies, nebulae, comets, and much more in unparalleled crisp and colorful details.  

The eVscope eQuinox is also a smart, dynamic scientific tool. Starting on day 1, you can conduct valuable space science with astronomers from the SETI Institute and other institutions. Protect Earth by detecting a hazardous asteroid. Discover and confirm the existence of a hot Jupiter around a distant star. Uncover the mysteries of a comet or supernova.

As part of the Unistellar Network, eQuinox 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 your observations confirmed, and see your data put into action through charts, visuals and 3D prints. 

eVscope eQuinox, an unmatched mix of speed, convenience and power.

With the eVscope eQuinox, discovering and exploring outer space can fit into your busy schedule, even from a balcony in the city.

The eQuinox can be set up in a few seconds, and, within minutes, you can explore numerous deep-space objects. Observe and navigate space using any smartphone or tablet (even if your device is outside, while you enjoy the cosy comforts of home). Easily share your experience with others: Up to 10 people at once can observe space while their smartphone or tablet is connected to the eQuinox.


Enhanced Vision - 100x more powerful than a regular telescope
Enhanced Vision is 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 observing conditions (light pollution, moon phase, weather, etc…) and the objects you are pointing, 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 eQuinox 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 eQuinox 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).

Citizen Science - Conduct Space Science with Your Unistellar Crew
The Unistellar Network is the first global community of citizen astronomers, 5 000 strong and counting. With every new user comes a new citizen scientist, fuelling Unistellar’s evermore powerful global array of connected telescopes, each capable of delivering scientifically valuable observations. Partnership with the SETI Institute.

A dedicated app, mission control for your outer space explorations
With the push of a button and tap of the app, your eQuinox 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.

Perfect for the armchair astronomer in a light-polluted environment
Sunday, 26 September 2021  | 

The idea of using a 4.5" scope with no eyepiece to view deep sky objects in a city may sound daft, but I was truly impressed by this scope's performance. The positive features include:
- scope + tripod weighs only 9 kg so it's easy to carry outside
- easy to set up. Just level the tripod and put the scope on the tripod. Typically takes less than 5 minutes.
- runs off a rechargeable battery (12-hour life per charge) so no cables to trip over in the dark
- after set up, you can retreat indoors for the rest of the viewing session, as you view everything via wi-fi on a tablet (or presumably a mobile phone, but I can't imagine using such a small screen)
- the 'go to' targetting is stunningly accurate. Most objects appear centred in the view.
- even in light-polluted environments (I live in a suburb where the naked eye limiting magintude is about 4) you get decent images of deep sky objects after only a few minutes. I was able to detect galaxies down to about magnitude 14.

The only negative aspects I've noticed so far are:
- the manual needs to be much more comprehensive. You need to do a fair bit of googling to discover all the features
- can't track objects if there's a moderate to strong wind - too much vibration
- planets aren't very clearly visible - typically they appear over-exposed (though maybe I just need to fiddle with the settings some more)
- some post-processing of images (using software on a PC) is needed to bring out the full detail, although the unprocessed images are still quite impressive
- it's quite expensive for a first telescope. However, if you want to get decent photos of deep sky objects, you would probably need to spend a lot more if you use traditional large scope + camera, so for astrophotography, it's probably a bargain, and is *much* easier to use than a traditional setup
