Humans are eternally curious about the night sky, but figuring out how to use a telescope isn’t trivial. At CES in Las Vegas, Unistellar believes he has found the perfect solution with his Equinox 2 Smart Telescope.

“When I was a young teenager I had a telescope that I used on the long summer nights. Fast forward to adulthood – I didn’t have time to delve into astronomy anymore. With a friend of mine, we started thinking about what we can do to bring astronomy back into our busy lives,” says Laurent Marfisi, co-founder and CEO of Unistellar, in an interview with Alaska Green Light Blog. “We came up with a telescope that’s easy to use, powerful enough to see through light pollution, and has the ability to see galaxies and nebulae, all the things we don’t see even as teenagers could. The goal is to bring much of the power that professionals in astronomy have into the daily lives of consumers who just want to have fun and spend quality time with their kids and their friends around astronomy.”

The telescope doesn’t have an eyepiece, so you’ll need to use the app to both control and capture the magic of the night sky. The app knows more than 5,000 celestial objects for you to explore and uses the phone’s GPS to know where in the world it is. It then looks around and recognizes specific stars to determine exactly where to look.

The eQuinox 2 smart telescope will retail for $2,499, pre-order is now available, and it’s available worldwide next month.
