Ever since the pandemic struck telescopes have been flying off shelves as home-based hobbies soared in popularity, but it’s a sad fact that light pollution seriously limits what many new stargazers can see from their back gardens. Cue the eVscope 2 from Marseille, France-based Unistellar, which has partnered with Nikon on what it claims is now the world’s most powerful consumer-grade digital telescope. 

The eVscope 2 is a very different beast to your average beginner’s telescope. For starters, it’s entirely digital, allowing up to ten smartphones for tablets to connect via WiFi and live-stream observations made by its 114mm/4.5-inch reflector.
