No! Night Sky MiniScope is a powerful optical lens. It contains no electronic parts and does not require batteries to operate.

When zoomed in I find it hard to take a picture without the image moving.

You must always use a tripod with Night Sky MiniScope and the Night Sky MiniScope software within the Night Sky apps. Night Sky MiniScope will not work correctly just using the standard camera on your device. The Mini Tripod supplied is designed to keep Night Sky MiniScope perfectly steady due to it’s powerful zoom. Night Sky MiniScope can provide an extremely powerful maximum zoom of 500X when optical and digital zoom are combined. When zoomed in at high levels, it becomes easy to disturb the image, even when tapping the capture button whilst on the tripod. It’s not a problem! You can use MiniScope Remote on Apple Watch to adjust the Zoom, ISO, and Exposure settings, then tap to capture remotely. This leaves the Night Sky MiniScope undisturbed. If you don’t have an Apple Watch, you can attach your headphones (supplied with every iPhone), and use the volume button on the headphones to remotely capture the image! Also, we have added a 3 second timer delay if you prefer to tap the capture button on your iPhone. This allows the device to steady after you tap the capture button so it takes the image completely undisturbed.

Why does my Focus seem harder to turn than normal?

If Night Sky MiniScope is being used in very cold conditions this can sometimes make the focus slightly harder to adjust than when it is used in warmer conditions. We recommend removing Night Sky MiniScope from the tripod and also removing your device if attached before adjusting the focus if conditions become very cold.

I see a line through a star or planet, why is this?

Some planets such as Saturn and Jupiter do have lines or bands when viewed in focus. However, if you are seeing a strong black line and the image is quite large, this indicates that the Night Sky MiniScope is not in focus. You need to adjust the focus until the object becomes smaller, then use the Digital Zoom to assist in zooming in on the object.

Do you do any special pricing for education establishments?

Yes! We are able to offer education establishments discounts for larger quantities of Night Sky MiniScope. Please contact with your enquiry.

What ages is Night Sky MiniScope recommended for?

Whilst Night Sky MiniScope is a great educational tool, Night Sky MiniScope IS NOT A TOY. It uses advanced photography features within the Night Sky stargazing apps. Adult supervision is required when using Night Sky MiniScope with kids.
