The Vaonis Stellina is a refractor with an aperture of 80mm and a focal length of 400mm, set up on an altazimuth GoTo mount. After turning it on, the device aligns itself fully automatically. As Stellina lacks a traditional eyepiece, also focusing is done by the device. Setting an observation target and photographing is achieved using an app via Stellina’s WiFi hotspot.
