The Vespera II by Vaonis redefines astrophotography with a smart, portable telescope for capturing the cosmos in ultra-HD. It's designed for easy use, from backyard astronomers to adventurous explorers, offering features like up to 24MP astrophotography, automatic tracking, and live image enhancement.

The Vespera II smart telescope represents a significant leap in stargazing technology, blending the capabilities of a sophisticated camera with the power of a traditional telescope into a portable, user-friendly device. It simplifies astronomy, allowing for live observations and astrophotography with up to 24-megapixel images, all through an apparatus that's easy to set up regardless of the user's prior experience. This telescope is not only compact and durable but also designed for adventurers, ready to capture the universe's vast beauty in detailed colors and clarity.

Vespera II from Vaonis, the smart telescope that lets you experience the cosmos in ultra-HD

Vaonis has integrated cutting-edge technology into Vespera II, including algorithms that maximize photon collection from deep space, high-quality sensors, and exclusive live mosaic capture. This technology ensures detailed celestial images, even in light-polluted urban settings or during daylight using optional solar filters. Vespera II supports RAW 16-bit image files, perfect for post-observation editing. Its features like automatic initialization, pointing, tracking, and live auto-focus facilitate a seamless stargazing experience. The device also encourages social stargazing, allowing connection with up to 10 devices for shared celestial explorations.
