Our Mission and Vision
Together, we will build the largest community of stargazers, each of whom can observe the deep sky
from everywhere 24/7.

Unistellar will do this with our eVscope, a revolutionary, light-amplified, user-friendly telescope that’s 100
times more powerful than regular telescopes. The eVscope allows everyone to observe the universe,
from downtown or the countryside, with unprecedented ease, and to become part of a global network of
observers who participate in a new kind of citizen astronomy.

eVScope Key Functionalities
100 times more powerful than a standard telescope: Thanks to its unique enhanced-vision technology,
the eVscope is 100x more powerful than a standard telescope. Our system uses a low-light sensor to
accumulate light through a series of short exposures. Watch the universe from downtown and the
countryside and prepare to be amazed by the crisp, detailed views of the universe you see in the
eyepiece of the eVscope.

Easy to Use: Set your eVscope up on its tripod, turn it on, choose an object on your app and observe. No
constellations knowledge required or training required, no polar-star alignment needed, the eVscope
does it all by itself in a few minutes. Your system instantly recognizes objects in its field of view by
comparing what it sees with an internal map of coordinates for tens of millions of stars.

Citizen Science: Scientists will be able to launch observing campaigns and invite eVscope users to join
their research by activating their device’s Observation Campaign Mode. In partnership with the SETI
Institute, eVscope users will contribute to worldwide observing campaigns while using their eVscopes to
witness striking events such as supernovae and comets, and search and watch threatening asteroids.

Lightweight: The eVscope is so small that it can be carried in a backpack.
