Citizen Science Astronomy with the Unistellar Network: From Planetary Defense to Exoplanet Transits
Unistellar is reinventing popular astronomy with the Enhanced Vision Telescope: a combination of optics, electronics, and proprietary image-processing technology to make astronomy easy, fun and interactive. In partnership with the SETI Institute, the company will build the largest network of telescopes capable of observing the sky 24/7 from everywhere on this planet. Unistellar's Enhanced Vision Telescope is the first telescope that accumulates light so the user can finally see hundreds of faint astronomical objects in all their shapes and colors live through its lens. Because classical high end telescopes only allow the user to see the four main planets, this technology will radically transform amateur astronomy. Relying on its on-board computer, the telescope also recognizes the observed area and can guide and inform the user in real time.
