Who doesn’t want a massive saving on a new telescope? Well, we’ve discovered that the Unistellar eVscope eQuinox is now $1000 off, so you can scope out the cosmos for much, much less.

The $1000 discount (opens in new tab) comes at a time when many are trying to save where they can and it’s unlikely you’ll see anything like this discount on many other telescopes. We like this telescope a lot, almost as much as this deal, and it even gets a mention in our best telescopes guide. If you’re in the market for more great discounts then be sure to check out our best telescope deals guide to see what else you can save on. 

One of the great things about the Unistellar eQuinox is that it’s a smart computerized telescope making it quick to set up and easy to use, even if you have no prior knowledge of the night sky. Unistellar excels in making some of the best telescopes for deep space in our opinion and if you want to check out fantastic online telescope deals, you can always read our round-ups of telescopes on Amazon, and telescopes at Walmart.

There’s a lot to like about the Unistellar eQuinox telescope, and not just the fact you can now save $1000 (opens in new tab). It comes with technology and a database that can locate and view targets in a matter of moments, is highly powerful, allows for citizen science among the Unistellar Network, is ready to use in minutes (there’s no complicated set-up or calibration) and is surprisingly portable for a telescope of this power. 

The eQuinox isn’t a traditional telescope, in that it has no complex setup procedure, no eyepiece and it doesn’t require any knowledge of the night sky for star alignment. Instead, it has a digital magnification of up to 400x (although 150x is the recommended maximum), an optical magnification of 50x and a focal length of 450mm. That means faint deep-sky objects like star clusters, galaxies and nebulae will be clearly visible and the highlight of your stargazing experience.

When linked to the smart app via Wi-Fi it can be used to capture photographs of the stars without having to buy a separate camera, purchase adapters, or fiddle with shutter speeds. The autonomous field detection feature means the telescope instantly recognizes night sky targets in its field of view and has automated pointing and tracking for ease of use. There’s also light pollution reduction software built-in to partner an app with a 5000-object database, so you know exactly what you’re looking at. 

One of the more impressive features is the community that comes with this telescope and the option of citizen science. Thanks to Unistellar’s international community, users can interact with professional astronomers and conduct genuine scientific observations, including looking out for hazardous asteroids.
