Unistellar turns watching the sky into a communal activity @ CES 2023

If you're like me, using a telescope can be a real pain. I'm no astronomer, I just want to be able to look at interesting things in the night sky. But it requires me to know a lot about the sky, where those interesting things are located, and then how to find them with the telescope. It seems as if this is a common issue, as the team at Unistellar has developed an exciting new telescope that requires a lot less information to enjoy at home.

What is Unistellar?

Unistellar is a revolutionary new telescope that uses patented technology to make it easier for people to explore the night sky. It utilizes an advanced digital camera, combined with powerful software and a sophisticated sensor-based tracking system, to enable users to easily search for stars, planets, galaxies, nebulae, and other fascinating elements within the universe.

The app allows you to find celestial objects and understand them in detail, all from the comfort of your own home. Once you locate something you want to see, that can be seen from where you are, the telescope will automatically move into position, allowing you to see the object of interest. All of this without having to have a deep understanding of the sky. The software also offers educational resources to ensure users have the best experience possible. In addition to being able to look at objects in the sky, you can read about the object, including history, mythologioy, and more.

Unistellar is designed for use by amateur astronomers, those who are just beginning their journey into astronomy and astrophotography, as well as seasoned hobbyists. Its intuitive user interface allows anyone to begin exploring the night sky from the ground up. With Unistellar, users can locate and identify celestial bodies in minutes. From there, they can customize their experience by adjusting brightness levels, switching between color and black-and-white views, and even capturing beautiful images of these amazing objects.

Unistellar also features a library of basic astronomy tutorials and videos to help users understand the night sky better. Additionally, it offers a community forum where users can ask questions and share their experiences with other astronomers. The Unistellar app also lets you capture photos and videos as well as post them on social media platforms. Unistellar is your gateway to discovering the wonders of the universe.

Unistellar the social experience

The most interesting and unique feature of the Unistellar telescope is its social feature. If someone discovers something new or interesting, they can mark it in the sky. Then, other users with their telescope set up can receive a notification and have the telescope find the object in the sky for you to observe.

Because of the connected and social aspect, users can also participate in distributed computing, applied to the sky. Similar to SETI@home, the Unistellar telescopes can use their combined data to identify new objects in the sky.
