Vaonis Vespera Pro

The Vaonis Vespera Pro keeps all of the user-friendly features of the original but with a host of impressive upgrades. These include a new Sony IMX676 Sensor, capable of 12.5mp resolution (32mp when used with covalens) and 2-micron pixel size. The field corrector has been improved to accommodate the larger sensor format as well as a longer focal length of 250mm and extended battery life. There are also new features available in the Singularity app.


Improved Sensor

The Vespera Pro comes equipped with the new SONY IMX676 sensor with Starvis 2 technology, offering a 12.5 MP resolution* and a 2um pixel size. This sensor excels in low-light situations thanks to its back-illuminated structure making it perfect for astronomy.

*Up to 32 MP with Covalens


New Field Corrector

The Vespera Pro features a new field corrector to accommodate the higher requirements of the larger sensor. 


Upgraded Lens

The station features a unique quadruplet lens of 50mm, which consists of 2 groups of 2 lenses made with lanthanum glass. The new lens has a longer focal length of 250mm with an f/5 aperture. The field of view is also larger at 1.6° x 1.6°. 


Extended Battery Life And Storage

The Vespera Pro now has a battery life of up to 11 hours* and an in-built storage capacity of 250 Gb, so that you can explore the night sky without restriction.

*Extendable with a power bank


Pre-Installed Hygrometer Sensor

Another fantastic new feature of the Vespera Pro is a pre-installed hygrometer sensor. This will activate the anti-fog system once a certain temperature and humidity threshold is reached.


Blue Or Red?

You can change the colour of Vespera’s button to red so that there is less light being transmitted to impact your surroundings.


Expert Mode Unlocked

The Vespera Pro allows you to access Expert Mode via the Singularity app which is available on both IOS and Android. Here you will find a number of new features including;

  • Camera Setting Control - This allows you to set the number of images, single exposure time and gain.
  • Capture Darks, Flats, and Offsets files - The Vespera Pro comes with a lens cap that helps with sensor thermal noise reduction.
  • Automatic Dark Calibration - Subtracts calibration frames automatically to your observations.

Explore the Universe. Wherever You Are

The Vespera Pro Observation Station weighs just 5kgs and measures only 40 x 20 x 9 cm. This makes it compact and lightweight enough to take with you out into the wilderness as well as the comfort of your back garden.


Easy To Use

The Vespera Pro is extremely easy to set up and even easier to use. Simply place it where you want to by using the adjustable tripod legs and press the button. The Vespera will then calibrate itself via the Star Field Recognition technology.

  • Auto-initialization - The Vespera uses the GPS on your smartphone for star pattern recognition and astrometry so that it can calibrate itself. It can do all of this automatically and have you set up within 5 minutes. 
  • Pointing & Tracking - The Vespera can track stellar objects automatically thanks to the integrated Go-to technology. 
  • Autofocus - An auto-focus feature has been integrated so that you don’t have to worry about focusing manually.

Image Stacking In Real Time

The Vespera has the ability to stack images in real time so that you can gradually reveal the details and colours of the object you have selected. You can set the duration for a few minutes or for several hours depending on the level of detail you want to achieve in your final image.
