Pegasus Astro SmartEye

SmartEye Features

  • The Pegasus Astro SmartEye utilizes a Sony IMX533 9mp camera sensor combined with telescope light-gathering capabilities for an enhanced visual observing experience.
  • The eyepiece is a 2" barrel, thus can be fit into any 2" focuser.
  • Composed of an aluminum body, making it very durable.
  • 2560x2560 resolution!
  • Water resistant -20°C to 50°C.
  • Wide field of view of 90°, perfect for imaging and viewing larger angular sized deep sky objects depending on the telescope being used.
  • Ultra High Definition Display for sharp live views!
  • SD slot available to store images on a card.
  • Dual band Wifi support (2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz 802.11 b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 5.
  • SmartEye offers a hybrid approach where astrophotography can be conducted while observing through an eyepiece like a visual experience.
  • Objects that are typically too dim to see visually are amplified in brightness, allowing for detailed viewing of many more deep sky objects like nebulae and galaxies.
  • The sensor removes light pollution glare in light-polluted areas, making lower magnitude objects visible.
  • SmartEye seamlessly integrates with regular observing eyepieces, enabling easy swapping between imaging and visual observation.
  • Live stacking capability facilitates the creation of splendid images of the cosmos.
  • USB-C port for power supply.
  • Night Vision mode dims and reddens the screen to preserve dark sky adaptation.
  • Images can be viewed on the SmartEye display or on a phone/tablet and can be stored via FITS files.
  • Compatibility with the SkySafari mobile app provides additional features and information about viewed objects.
  • iOS and Android compatible.
  • Requires sidereal tracking and compatibly with Altaz and Equatorial mounts.

Merge the Experience of Visual and Astrophotography Into One Session!

The Pegasus Astro SmartEye harnesses the power of a Sony IMX533 9mp camera sensor with the light gathering capabilities of a telescope for an enhaced visual observing experience! In essense, astrophotography can be done by observing through an eyepiece, somewhat of a hybrid! A highlight of this ability is the amplified brightness of objects that would ordinarily be too dim to see visually. This means many more deep sky objects like nebulae and galaxies with dimmer magnitude are viewable in detail than would otherwise be the case. When viewing from light polluted areas, the sensor is built by removing light pollution glare so lower magnitute objects can still become visible.

Optically, the SmartEye has a 2" barrel size, 90° field of view, 12mm of eye relief and a diopter adjustment range of +1D to -5D. This makes it a wise choice for viewing large angular sized objects with its wide field of view (depending on the telescope being used), and its long eye relief and diopter adjustment.

The SmartEye can integrate with a regular observing eyepiece, thus it can easily be swapped out if the user wants to switch between imaging and visual. This is helpful to first find objects that are too dim, but viewing visually after being centered.

The Pegasus SmartEye is simply placed into the telescope focuser and can facilitate live stacking to render splendid images of the cosmos.

To avoid uncessary disturbance of dark sky eye adaption, the Night Vision mode on the SmartEye can dim and redden the screen. In addition to viewing on the SmartEye Ultra High Definition Display, images can also be viewed on a phone or tablet and can store data via FITS files. An SD slot is also available for storing images.

The Pegasus SmartEye is compatible with the SkySafari mobile app which makes available a handful of new features and more information about the objects being viewed etc.
