What is the Unistellar Deep Dark Technology?


Deep Dark Technology (DDT) is a radical advancement designed by Unistellar to filter noise and light pollution. This technology automatically filters out the interference from city lights that would otherwise obscure the light signal from distant celestial objects. 

Even in very bright urban areas, Deep Dark Technology instantly transforms the image so that it has a black background as intense as the depths of space, revealing even the faintest celestial objects with impressive clarity. The Lyra nebula reveals its vivid blue and red hues, and the Cigar galaxy, located 11.4 million light-years away, showcases the picturesque shape and details for which it is named.

How does Deep Dark Technology work?

By analyzing the many images of the sky captured by our user community, our exclusive algorithms have been trained to automatically distinguish the light signal coming from celestial bodies from noise and light pollution.

Our algorithms analyze each part of the image and determine which of its components is linked to light pollution. This is then removed, revealing the targeted celestial object and the myriad of stars surrounding it.
