Unistellar launches Smart Solar Filter for telescopes

Unveiled at IFA in Berlin, the launch of the Smart Solar Filter once again expands the unique capabilities of Unistellar smart telescopes. Observing the sun has never been easier and safer for your eyes and those of your loved ones. Simply place the Smart Solar Filter over a Unistellar smart telescope. When connected to the Unistellar application, it will automatically point to our own star and then follow it continuously, allowing you to concentrate on the pleasure of observation.

Unistellar telescopes image processing algorithms, a proprietary innovation, are actually capable of identifying light gradients due to the sun in broad daylight, and so understanding exactly where our star is located.

Crafted from a high-quality polymer film, the Smart Solar Filter reduces sunlight by 100,000 times, providing an optimal viewing experience. With the image processing carried out in real time by Unistellar smart telescopes, you are able to enjoy details of our star such as its sunspots, little-known astronomical phenomena which can be the size of our Earth.

Unistellar – The Universe Awaits

For years, pros and consumers alike have questioned just how big our universe is and what lies beyond it. With time, new methods have been introduced for how we view and observe space, leading to new discoveries. Yet, much is still left unexplored that pros alone don’t have the time or equipment to support. 

With Unistellar’s suite of powerful, easy-to-use smart telescopes, like our CES award-winning eVscope and eQuinox, however, we’ve broken barriers to bring the wonders of the universe to life in seconds to 10,000+ people throughout the world regardless of their astronomy knowledge. Using our mobile app and automated features, users browse a catalog of 5,000+ celestial objects, selecting from those visible to them based on a database of coordinates and the telescope’s GPS. Once selected, Unistellar’s smart telescopes use Autonomous Field Detection to automatically pinpoint, focus and track the object.

Due to our innovations in smart telescopes, anyone with a passion and curiosity for space can now co-author groundbreaking scientific research via our Citizen Science Network, which is supported by partnerships with NASA and the SETI Institute. In sharing data and insights from our network with professional astronomers, we can fast-track the development of predictions and models for the future to better understand how our world works.
