Our team works every day on the continuous improvement of Stellina and Vespera through updates, including their image processing algorithms. The photos published on this page were captured less than 6 months ago, in order to better reflect the evolution of the performance of our observation stations. If you would like to share your artwork, feel free to send us your photos at firstname.lastname@example.org (more information here).
Yes, all these photos have been taken with the Vaonis observation stations. They have been captured either by our team members, our ambassadors or by Vaonis’ users, a community that you can meet on the #mySingularity Facebook group.
For more transparency, the photos with an asterisk, next to the object’s name, have been processed manually using the raw files.
Those without asterisks are the photos resulting from the automatic image processing of Stellina or Vespera, without post-processing or editing (jpeg photos taken “straight out of the box”).
Vaonis has developed CovalENS, a patented method of image capture that allows users to obtain an image of the extended field in an optimum time, while simultaneously proceeding to the stacking of images. Called Mosaic Mode in the app, it represents the first automated “panorama mode” ever embedded into a telescope. By using the CovalENS technology, the station will take several photos of the same stellar region and then automatically stitch them together, thus offering users a larger view (“field” in astrophotography) of the universe. Users can now give free rein to their creativity by composing unique and personalized photos according to their desires, pushing the limits of their instrument. Read more here
