Mirrosky has introduced a smart telescope for planet and nebula photography. The company is currently running a successful Kickstarter campaign, surpassing its initial goal by tens of thousands of dollars. The Mirrosky smart space telescope features a built-in Automatic stargaze, Coordinate Automatic Initialization, and a Celestial Library. Mirrosky automatically calculates the coordinates of celestial bodies, making it easy to find, track, and capture photos. It has a built-in acceleration sensor, an electronic compass sensor, and a photoelectric sensor for automatically initializing coordinates. The company says its Smartalign technology and smart camera module make pointing quick and accurate. Additionally, the Mirrosky boasts an advanced 5-megapixel with a 1/2.8-inch star image sensor enabling users to capture bright nebulae.
The Mirrosky smart telescope consists of four modules: A 500M pixel HD smart camera, a high-definition 127MM Maksutov-Cassegrain coated optical lens, a 50MM high-definition optical finder set, a computerized theodolite bracket, and a durable stainless-steel tripod. The telescope also provides a live stacking function, so users can take multiple photos and combine them into one image, allowing fine details and wider shots without any post-processing.
Mirrosky is an artificial intelligence astronomy innovation company founded by astronomy and technology enthusiasts in the field. The company focuses on combining advanced digital image processing and recognition with optical systems. The Mirrosky smart telescope is available to support on Kickstarter.
