    Hello, it will be possible to download all the raw images collected during the acquiring session to post-elaborate them in external tools like Pixinsight, right? The FITS image format will be available as well? Thank you! Alessandro

    Will there be an IOS version of the software? I looked in the App Store under “Seestar” and there is nothing there yet.

      Hi Luigi, are you referring to your previous inquiry about the battery life? I already replied it and in case you missed it, here you go “Seestar has a battery level indicator on both its body and app, and can be charged via power bank while in use.”

      Seestar S50 is equipped with three built-in filters: UV/IR Cut filter, dark filter, and dual-band anti-light pollution filter (OIII 30nm/Hα 20nm). The switching of the dark filter is automatically controlled by Seestar. As for the UV/IR Cut filter and light pollution filter, users can switch between them in the app based on their own needs.

    “Turn your smartphone or tablet into your telescope command center.” Will the tablet app (eg. IPad) be a native tablet app so the screen will be large for outreach, or will it just be a small ported IPhone app?

    Thanks for putting out an exciting product.
    I have several questions about this product and would be glad to get answers.
    Q1. What type of motor drives the azimuth and altitude? (Stepper? or DC servo?)
    Q2. Is it possible to introduce celestial objects from a star map in the mobile app?
    Q3. Is the built-in battery replaceable?

    Will it be possible for the user to add their own filters (such as light pollution or solar filters) to the imaging train of the SeeStar telescope? And is the imaging sensor cooled?
