What's "smart" about this accessory?

Our Solar Experience will allow you to easily observe the Sun with our smart Go-To Sun feature in our UNISTELLAR App. Connect to your telescope during the daytime, place our filter on the telescope, and with the UNISTELLAR App point, track the Sun automatically.


Why should I use the UNISTELLAR Smart Solar Filter vs another solar filter fitting on top of the telescope? 

UNISTELLAR reminds you that it is never safe to observe the Sun without the proper equipment. We only guarantee safe solar observations with our Smart Solar Filter. The polymer sheet has been selected to reduce sunlight for our sensor by 100.000, and the mount has been designed to fit perfectly to our telescope. We also guarantee that our telescope's onboard solar image processing was developed to work with this specific filter only.


How to observe : 

  • Set up the telescope on its tripod in the direction of the Sun according to the official solar quick start guide that will be delivered with your filter purchase
  • Remove the dust cap on top of the telescope and install immediately the Smart Solar Filter 
  • Connect to the telescope with your smartphone and launch the UNISTELLAR app
  • In the catalog, select the Sun and click on the Goto button to point and track the Sun automatically
  • Enjoy your observation!


Important: UNISTELLAR Warranty

UNISTELLAR guarantees safe solar observations only with the UNISTELLAR Smart Solar Filter and only with its proper use. There is a risk of damaging the unit during solar observation by not respecting the official quick start guide instructions. In such a situation, the damage will be considered to be a misuse and will not be covered under warranty. The user can contact UNISTELLAR to repair the sensor at his own expense. If a user breaks the solar filter, UNISTELLAR will not be able to repair it. Please contact our support team, and we will try to find a solution.
