For centuries, telescopes have fascinated our minds. They have been our doors to
 the unknown, they have been our way to explore, discover and contemplate
the unseen. Over time, they evolved to help us see further and better. 

Following the steps of those who came before us, we innovated and created a new
observation instrument to offer new possibilities for everyone. With their iconic design,
Vespera and Stellina claim their uniqueness in the astronomy landscape with style and elegance.
A revolutionary design for a revolutionary experience.

With powerful performances.

A rare optical system combining
compactness and performance.
Vaonis has developed an optical system inspired by the biggest professional observatories combined with the refractor lenses used by amateurs in search of excellence. That is the origin of the refractor-reflector system Nasmyth focus present in each Stellina.
The first on board
auto-focus accessible
to everyone.
We know that adjusting focus is a tedious process for many observers. This is why Stellina’s motor is controlled by its on-board computer. This system allows for a focal precision of 12 micrometers. Stellina captures an image, analyses it and indicates the best position to place the sensor, which then lets the motor do it automatically. Thermal variations are also taken into account to allow the user to calibrate the focus when necessary.
Power and control.
A powerful sensor, 4 motors, 1 heating resistance, 2 temperature and humidity sensors, Stellina has no shortage of on-board equipment. To control all of this and offer the best possible images, Stellina includes an on-board computer equipped with a 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, a high-performance graphics processor and 1 GB of SDRAM. To supply all of these elements in the best possible way, a dedicated and intelligent electronic card optimizes each energy expenditure and allows Stellina to be supplied simply via a USB port.
Countering constraints.
Alt-azimuthal mounts offer many advantages such as: ease of installation, balancing stability and easy positioning of the various electronic elements. A defect does however exist, the field rotation. This directly impacts the size of the observable area due to the slow rotation of the field on itself. Stellina incorporates a mechanical rotation system controlled by the imaging unit in order to guarantee that the sensor operates at its maximum capacity. Additionally, it allows you to choose the field you want, particularly useful for diffuse nebulae and galaxies!
