Turn light amplification on and system will rely on its last-generation low-light sensors to accumulate light through summation of short exposures. The image is directly projected into the eyepiece “as the accumulation goes” which means once you start light amplification, you’ll see something right away, and the object will keep improving with time.
Depending on observing conditions (light pollution, moon phase, weather, etc…) and depending on the objects you are pointing, it can take from a few seconds to several tens of seconds for you to start discerning the beautiful colors and shapes of galaxies and nebulae normally invisible directly through the eyepiece of a regular -even high end- telescope.
Our system instantly recognizes its field of view by comparing it to exhaustive databases of millions of stars. It can then display names and data about what you are observing (size, distance to the Earth, etc…). Field Recognition also means our automated tracking and pointing systems are super accurate.
We are working with a former member of the United Nations workgroup dedicated to Planetary Defense and Near Earth Objects to develop a feature of participative science: connect yourself to an asteroid watch network and gather data to help index and characterize asteroids, including those potentially harmful to the Earth.
Light amplification means a smaller telescope can give you more. Our telescope is so small that you can carry it in a back pack!
