For centuries, telescopes have fascinated our minds. They have been our door to
 the unknown, our way to explore, discover and contemplate
the unseen. Over time, they have 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.

Quadruplet Apochromatic Refractor

Our team has designed a unique quadruplet lens of 50mm, formed by 2 groups of 2 lenses made with lanthanum glass. Vespera optics is one of the most accurate and powerful optical designs on the market with 0 distorsion, 0 chromatic aberration, 0 astigmatism.

High sensitivity Sony sensor

Vespera uses one the lastest Sony sensors developed for extreme low light. Its back-illuminated CMOS sensor offers a 1/2.8 format and a 2.9um pixel size. We’ve also developed our own electronic card to make sure that heat management stays optimal. A hot sensor means a lot of defaults, so our sensor board is designed to dissipate the maximum amount of heat.
