Sternglas Alpha / Astronomy binoculars

Sternglas Alpha
Sternglas Alpha

The more we venture out into the cosmos, the more important it becomes to understand what happens in the sky around us - or at least to spark curiosity for it. The ideal first step towards that is the Sternglas Alpha. It’s not only a compact binocular with 15x magnification and image stabilizer, but it also has augmented reality-technology to allow projection of a digital layer on top of a real life image. This makes possible to screen information and images during nightsky observation and virtually enhanced zoom on celestial objects becomes possible. This way you create an exciting and optimally challenging access to astronomy.
