IO / Astro Photography System



Cosmic events are fascinating for us. Powered by spectacular public photography, we want to see these images with our own eyes. Telescopes require physical knowledge which we are not able to provide in general.
IO is an imaging and observing instrument for extra-terrestrial objects, equipped with full-automatic tacking and Goto-control. Users can concentrate on individual immersion while observing manual with eyepiece or digital image documentation.
