Vanois Vespera Observation Station smart telescope review

The Vaonis Vespera telescope ($2499/£1982) is the smallest smart telescope yet — and it looks the part. A smaller, lighter and more affordable version of its robotic bigger sister the Vaonis Stellina from French startup Vanois, the long-awaited Vespera (‘evening’ in Latin) is technically a camera and not a telescope. It has no eyepiece and instead creates images of the night sky that it shares with up to five connected smartphones or tablets via an app called Singularity.

Using a camera and working brilliantly even in light-polluted cities, it’s designed not for the moon and planets, but for the deep sky. Here’s everything you need to know about the Vespera in action.
