Quadruplet Apochromatic Refractor: Vaonis has designed a unique quadruplet lens of 50mm, formed by 2 groups of 2 lenses made with lanthanum glass. Vespera optics is one of the most accurate and powerful optical designs on the market with minimal distorsion, chromatic aberration or astigmatism.

High sensitivity Sony sensor: Vespera uses one the lastest Sony sensors developed for extreme low light. Its back-illuminated CMOS sensor offers a 1/2.8 format and a 2.9um pixel size. Vaonis also developed their own electronic card to make sure that heat management stays optimal. A hot sensor means a lot of defects, so the sensor board is designed to dissipate the maximum amount of heat.

Singularity guides you each step of the way on your journey to reach the stars.

CovalENS is a feature of Vespera that enables users to generate mosaic images of the night sky. With this feature, you can capture multiple images of adjacent regions of the sky and then stitch them together to create a larger image. CovalENS uses advanced algorithms to align the images and remove any distortions. This feature makes it possible to capture stunning views of the cosmos that would be impossible to achieve otherwise.

Great portable astrophotography solution

Review by N. P. on 14.02.2023 15:02:21

( 5 / 5 )

An excellent portable telescope with all the necessary elements for obtaining high-quality deep space photos. Vaonis Vespera is an all-in-one setup that takes less than 5 minutes to initialize and is ready to capture objects. Working through the application is very simple and the results are very good. Due to its small dimensions and the fact that it contains all the necessary elements (reflector, photochip, computer, autofocus, auto guiding, automatic stacking, tripod, wifi, 4h battery, etc.) for obtaining good astrophotographs of deep space objects. The database contains a rich database of objects that are a click away. However, for the purposes of objects that are not listed (e.g. comets), you can easily enter the coordinates and thus get everything you want in the palm of your hand. Due to its reflector performance, it is not the best solution for planets. The automatic photo processing done by Vaonis Vespera is good, but I definitely suggest that you save your final results as RAW TIFF and do some post-processing for even better astrophotography results. I own other telescopes and equipment, but I have to admit that Vespera makes my way to the vastness of space easier. Ok, the price is not something that pleases me too much, but given that it is very compact and functional, I would turn a blind eye to the price. I recommend it to all those who are just starting to deal with astrophotography, it is excellent for educational purposes, and it also meets the expectations of more demanding astrophotographers. It's great if you don't want to bother carrying too much gear to the field anymore.

The best telescope ever

Review by A. R. on 28.12.2022 11:17:37

( 5 / 5 )

This is an excellent piece of equipment to watch deep space objects. I took a snap of the Orion nebula with just 15 minutes of exposure and it looks great. It has a sturdy build and very easy to handle. The Singularity app is very user friendly. I would recommend this telescope to everyone who is interested in Astronomy , Astrophotography.
However, I was not really satisfied with the observation of the planets of our own Solar system.
