A ‘stellar’ looking telescope

Standard

There’s something clearly refreshing about the Znth AR Telescope. Its exterior looks so organic, it feels less like a highly precise piece of stargazing equipment, and more like a beautiful tool the examine the mysteries of the universe. Mounted on its natural-looking noded mount is the lens, with its own mirrored-telephoto attachment that lets you see even further than before.

What’s marvelous about the Znth aside from its stunning design (available in some dazzling colors) is the fact that it isn’t an ordinary telescope. Armed with AR capabilities, the telescope can motion-track its position, and identify cosmic bodies like galaxies, nebulae, planets, satellites, stars, and constellations. It then uses its AR chops to layer meaningful content over what you see, allowing you to observe and study objects in the night sky with the power of information attached to it too. The design also uses Vantablack’s super-black pigment to coat the insides of the scopes, letting your imagery be clearer than ever, uncorrupted by the scattering of light.

The Znth AR Telescope is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2018.
