4300 objects to choose from & recommandations. Automatic pointing and tracking.

Automatic initialization

It takes only a matter of minutes for Vespera II to orient itself based on your location and automatically detect the configuration of the starry sky.

Automatic pointing and tracking

Just choose your target among thousands of objects in the Singularity app catalog or provide your custom coordinates, and Vespera II will instantly find and track it.

Live auto-focus

Get consistently sharp stars, even when temperature changes. Vaonis instruments are the only ones equipped with an engine ensuring automatic focus, even during observation.

Live image enhancement

Vespera automatically rejects bad images and applies a technique used by experienced astrophotographers, called stacking, to the good ones, in order to enhance the clarity of the images in real time.

Inside Vespera II

How does it work ?

With an 'old-fashioned' telescope, colors are imperceptible, and even the most beautiful nebulae appear as dull, blurry patches.
Everything takes a turn with Vespera.

Technology at the forefront ...

Packed with cutting-edge technology, Vespera is the most innovative smart telescope you could ever find.

Vespera II combines premium quality optics with an ultra sensitive high-definition sensor and onboard computing technologies in an all-in-one, ready-to-operate device.

OPTICS

50mm - F/5 quadruplet apochromatic lens.

Vespera II optics feature extra-low dispersion lanthanum glass and a field corrector, ensuring the best image quality right to the edge of the field of view.

SENSOR

Sony IMX585
8.3Mp sensor.

This 3840 x 2160px ultra-sensitive sensor, boasting 2.9 µm pixels, in harmony with Vespera II's focal length, produces images with finer details (2,39 arc seconds).

... And the magic behind.

Vespera harnesses an image enhancement process called 'stacking,' which involves capturing multiple shots of the same object, selecting the best ones, and stacking them to reduce noise and increase contrast. Innovative algorithms, developed by Vaonis, then apply image processing to reveal the full range of colors and intricate details of nebulae and galaxies.

All of this happens automatically and in real-time. As you observe, the image quality gradually enhances.

Meticulously designed for superior quality, ruggedness and durability.

At Vaonis, we conceive our telescopes without compromising on quality, whether in the mechanical or optical components. Our dedication extends to creating products with captivating designs, ensuring an enhanced user experience. Enjoy the frequent use of our telescopes for extended periods and carry them effortlessly on your quest for the best skies.

  • Light pollution filter

    The light pollution filter or CLS (City Light Suppression) filter allows you to improve the quality of your photos when observing in the city or suburbs. It attenuates the effects of light pollution and thus increases the contrast between the celestial object and the background sky.

  • Dual band filter

    By selecting the wavelengths of Hydrogen Alpha and Oxygen, primarily found in emission nebulae, it increases contrast between the celestial object and the sky background. Its use results in a higher-quality image. It can also acts as a super light pollution filter for these objects.
