Unistellar - Overview of the Unistellar Pages

On this page, I provide an overview of the

  1. many pages about my electronic 4,5" Newton telescope Unistellar eVscope (I took part in a Kickstarter campaign in mid-November 2017; my eVscope arrived on January 27, 2020; sold on March 15, 2022).
  2. (few) pages about my new electronic 4,5" Newton telescope Unistellar eVscope 2 (ordered on November 9, 2021; delivered on December 3, 2021; exchanged for a new sample, received on April 8, 2022; returned to Unistellar for inspection in May 2022; replaced with a third new sample on August 22, 2022).

This overview is structured a little bit differently than the table of contents for the astronomy section, which takes all of my telescopes into account. The following structure is eVscope-oriented, but also contains a few pages with matching topics from other sections. Hopefully, this page will provide visitors (and me) with some orientation!

Note on eVscope 2: I received my eVscope 2 at the beginning of December 2021. I bought it, because I was convinced by the better image quality* of the published sample photos and by the slightly larger field of view. I therefore sold my original eVscope in March 2022.

*) Since I was not satisfied with the results of my new eVscope 2, Unistellar offered to check and possibly repair my eVscope 2. So, I sent it to Unistellar on February 14, 2022 and received information on February 18 that my eVscope 2 had been repaired and will be returned to me. When asked, I was told that there was a problem with the primary mirror, which was slightly under tension and therefore produced blurry images. As proof of the repair, I received a photo of Alnilam, which looks much better than my similar photo of Alnitak (near the Flame Nebula).

I describe my subsequent tests with the repaired eVscope 2 on the pages First Experiences (After Repair - Part 1) and First Experiences (After Repair - Part 2). According to this, the repair resulted in an improvement, but did not completely eliminate the mirror tension. Unistellar therefore offered to take back my eVscope 2 (end of March 2022) and exchange it for a new one. This one arrived at my home on April 8, 2022. For more information about this second sample, see the Unistellar eVscope 2 - Information page! In early May 2022, I sent it to Unistellar for inspection/repair. After inspection, Unistellar offered to send me another new one, but wanted to send me photos taken with it beforehand for evaluation. On August 11, 2022, I received a photo and on August 22, 2022 my third new eVscope 2.

So please note that my photos on the respective pages taken with the first and second eVscope 2 sample do not reflect the true performance of the eVscope 2!

Overview of My eVscope Pages (Original eVscope)

Archive

I sold my original eVscope in mid-March 2022 (I had previously purchased an eVscope 2 to replace it). Therefore, my eVscope pages will not be updated any further. Also, in the summer of 2022, version 2 of the Unistellar app was released, which "redesigned" the whole operation of the eVscope. As a result, many of my instructions, hints, and tips have become "obsolete" in one fell swoop, i.e. are no longer valid (in that form). I will try to "reawaken" one or the other matter in my eVscope 2 pages, but since Unistellar has documented most of it well by now, I see no need for major activities in this direction from my side.

The photos that I took with the eVscope and the descriptions of my observation sessions with the eVscope might still be interesting, though...

Overview of My eVscope 2 Pages

Photos: My third eVscope 2 (August 22, 2022)

At the beginning of July 2022, I agreed with Unistellar that my second sample of the eVscope 2, which I had sent to Unistellar for inspection and repair, should also be replaced with a new sample. Before shipping the new sample to me, Unistellar, however, wanted to send me photos for evaluation. On August 11, 2022, I received a photo and my third new eVscope 2 arrived at my home on August 22, 2022.
