How it Works

Getting started with Night Sky MiniScope™

Night Sky MiniScope is a small telescope designed to attach to your smart device.

Night Sky when using the Night Sky apps. Simply locate a bright object such as the Moon when using the Night Sky apps, then attach your Night Sky MiniScope to a tripod. With the supplied case, snap in your smart device, and enable MiniScope Mode to capture beautiful images directly onto your device.

Night Sky MiniScope works with the Night Sky apps from iCandi Apps®

Due to the extreme magnification of Night Sky MiniScope, images must always be taken using a tripod in conjuction with Night Sky Pro, The Night Sky or Night Sky Lite app. Take time to align your MiniScope on the tripod, and use MiniScope Remote on Apple Watch for best results.





Quick Tips

We recommend that you use the provided tripod at all times to capture the best photos. If you don’t use the tripod then you may have blurry images and they also may be out of focus. Night Sky MiniScope™ has a universal tripod screw so you are able to attach most of the 3rd party tripods to the Night Sky MiniScope™
