This is a fun unit and delivers some good images of the moon and sun. Clouds and cooler weather have limited my time on unit. The many features all seem to work as expected. If you are looking for a quick setup and a quick look around the sky this is definitely work a look, the price point makes it appealing. For what it offers it delivers at this price point. Would recommend.
Très bon instrument un excellent service chez vous je vais recommander à mes amis
I purchased the Seestar S50 for a couple of reasons, the first and most important was to have a travel-friendly scope that would fit in an airline carry-on bag, and secondly to try and encourage my grandkids to take an interest in astrophotography.. The item was back ordered due to demand at ZWO but somehow All-Star Telescope managed to get one for me ahead of when it was expected.
Overall, this is a good little scope with some limitations and glitches that one would expect for a new product, especially at the price. Setup was easy with the app and I was able to start imaging literally within minutes. One of the first limitations is that it only does 10 second exposures but given that the mount is not equatorial and there is no guide scope, this is understandable. The stacked images are saved on whatever mobile device one uses (I use both iPhone and iPad) and they are acceptable but not what one can obtain using more traditional equipment. However, they do allow saving of individual exposures that can be stacked and processed as usual. I primarily use Siril for stacking and stretching and it had no problem with images.
The second issue I have encountered is the auto-focus which works about 50% of the time in my hands. However, by changing the settings in the app, one can focus manually and also change the auto-focus setting so this is not a big deal.
The scope has a dew heater and built-in light pollution filter, both of which have to be turned on at the start of an imaging session. There are also accessories starting to become available at online shops such as Etsy which will enhance the utility of the scope further. I have ordered a Bhatinov mask and filter holder (2") but they have not arrived so I cannot comment on them.
For those in cold-weather locations, there does not seem to be any issues with using the Seestar at sub-zero temperatures. I typically take the scope outside, turn it on and then head inside to control it under warmer conditions. Don't forget to set up station mode or it won't be quite as useful.
Bottom line - this is an excellent little telescope that can deliver excellent quality images if one is willing to do some stacking and post-processing. Its ease of use and portability make it a versatile piece of equipment albeit not a replacement for more expensive rigs. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cost-effective starter telescope or for more experienced users who want something portable.
Super fast shipping great job
This little device, SeeStar, may change the astrophotography world. The first day I imaged the Sun Moon and three deep sky objects. It rocks. Sell something and get one you won't regret it. Get it from All-Star.
