Vaonis has added a new Mark II version of its Vespera smart telescope. The Vespera II offers higher resolution over the original Vespera, and other enhancments, in the same space-aged design as before.

Smart telescopes are becoming the modern way of seeing the stars. With built-in cameras, and remote control operation from your phone or tablet, you don't even need to go outside in the cold to explore the universe.
