Behind the scenes
It starts with a team

At Vaonis, we provide our customers with high-quality telescopes that are transportable and easy to use. Through innovation, we want to make astronomy an activity for everybody. We exist to explore the universe, share discoveries, exciting experience and bring the wonders of the night sky into the lives of our community. Our products are designed to transform stargazing in a friendly moment to share with our family and friends and everyone to enjoy together the sight of galaxies millions of light years away from us.
Today pictures are part of our lives: we use cameras, smartphones, drones, GoPros to capture every moment of our life… These technologies have changed the vision of the world for many people but nothing exists and excites future astronomers in exploring the universe, share their discoveries and amazing experience of the night sky. Vaonis has responded with a game-changing telescope, compact, light, easy to install and app-connected.
Vaonis is a French company based in Montpellier, France, that designs and manufactures telescopes and accessories. The company was founded in 2016 by Cyril Dupuy, a young start-up entrepreneur after obtaining his Bachelor in Optics and Aerospace. From his experience of using different telescopes with complex installation, long user guides and recurring breakdowns, he imagined and designed a telescope Stellina, the world first all-in-one telescope connected to a mobile app. The products are designed and developed by specialists in optics, mechanics, electronics, material and ergonomics, giving special attention in its design, quality and safety.
