What do you mean by Autonomous Field Detection?


Our system instantly recognizes the objects in its field of view by comparing what it sees with an internal map of coordinates of tens of millions of stars. Therefore, the eVscope can inform you about what you are observing (distance from the Earth, etc.).

Our telescope's automated tracking and pointing system also benefit from this information, to guarantee both observation accuracy and ease of use. The alignment procedure is automated. Simply connect with your app, and click auto-align. The telescope will learn its location and pointing direction by acquiring data (GPS positioning, stars in the field of view). In good sky conditions (no or a few clouds), the auto-alignment takes a few minutes.

Another mode will allow you to assist the telescope to point in specific the areas where the sky is clear, so you can align it even though the sky is partially cloudy.
