Hiuni Smart Telescope

Stargazing is something that we want to make time for at Coolector HQ as there are few things more mesmerising than a clear night sky but we lack the equipment to do it but that might be about to change because we’ve certainly had our heads well and truly turned by the superb looking Hiuni Smart Telescope which is funding over on Kickstarter now and, judging by the speed at which it got fully funded, we’re not alone in wanting to see one of these great bits of techs in our own home.

The Hiuni Smart Telescope on Kickstarter is a Cassegrain style telescope which makes stargazing so much more straightforward with its educational app and automatic, motorized GoTo alignment to make sure you see all the best things that the night sky has to offer. This fantastic bit of kit has already shot past the £100k mark in funding and it’s easy to see why because prices start at £360 during their funding campaign which is a great price for such an impressive piece of equipment.

Starry Skies

Designed to be simple to use for anyone, from any walk of life, the Hiuni Smart Telescope is an easy-to-use, computerised telescope which has been designed to be able to offer a shared live view stargazing experience and fun learning straight out of the box. This superb piece of stargazing equipment from Hiuni is smart in every sense of the word and the accompanying app lets you select an object in the night sky and automatically align with it without user intervention.

The Hiuni Smart Telescope really is taking Kickstarter by storm right now and its important to note that the Cassegrain style design boasts an integrated finderscope camera and dual mirrors for a truly eye-opening optical experience. What this means in practice, however, is that it allows for a compact design without compromising the focal length and quality of the stargazing that it is capable of offering.

When you turn the Hiuni Smart Telescope on for the first time, it will self calibrate and once you’ve connected to the app, you can choose an observable celestial object via said app and the telescope will autonomously calibrate to locate it in the sky. There are an abundance of cool features built into this first class piece of apparatus including a celestial events calendar to make sure you don’t miss any of the good stuff, a dual live view, a local sky database, augmented view and image sharing capabilities.

Plug In And Go

The beauty of the Hiuni Smart Telescope is just how quick and easy it is to set up. It’s merely a question of getting out of the box, plugging in and you’re pretty much good to go on the stargazing front. With its built-in sensor-array (GPS, accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope) it will rapidly work out its location and orientation, and once it calibrates its viewpoint in fine detail with the ‘Celestial Vision Alignment’ system, you’ll be able to enjoy all the stargazing your eyes can handle.

For anyone with an interest in the night sky and stargazing who has been looking for an affordable, not to mention incredibly accomplished, telescope to bear witness to it all, the Hiuni Smart Telescope on Kickstarter definitely gets our vote here at Coolector HQ. So simple to set up and use and with an abundance of mighty impressive features to boot, this one will be tough to beat.
