GALASPHERE is an advanced telescope with a interactive system designed for entry-level astronomical fans, bringing an easy, immersive and connected stargazing experience.
The Mystery of far-away stars and the Curiosity of astronomical fans are the reason why they are engaged with the deep beautiful night sky.
But for entry-level stargazers, they are suffering three major problems:
The heavy and complex telescopes create a bad stargazing experience and make it difficult for them to use and understand.
Lack of Information
It‘s hard for them to learn the complicated astronomical knowledges correctly as well as finding the latest news that guide them to observe.
In addition, they get lost easily and don' t know what star they are looking at when being exposed to the night sky dotted with thousands of stars.
Disconnected with Community
Because of lacking the astronomical knowledge and information, they sometimes miss the observation opportunity of some valuable astronomical phenomena.
