If you order your Unistellar telescope directly through our Eshop, we will add you to our Citizen Astronomers list and Map (see below) automatically.
If it's not the case and you would like to join our citizen science programs, here is the way to get registered:
- Please open the Unistellar app on your smartphone or tablet,
- Go to the Science tab,
- Click the info button in the right upper corner,
- Click "Send an email”.
This way we will get your location data and you will then become a member of The Unistellar Global Network of Citizen Astronomers.
We also suggest you check our Citizen Science page to get more information on our citizen science programs, from howto guides to predictions.
In a nutshell, scientists who launch an observing campaign invite eVscope users to join their research by activating their device’s “Observation Campaign Mode.” Users who do that get observing coordinates via smartphone, transfer those coordinates to their eVscope at the touch of a finger, and soon begin to generate data that is returned to the scientists leading the campaign. This feature allows eVscope users around the world to view events of scientific interest—such as comets or supernovae—through their device’s eyepiece as they generate valuable new data for scientists.
