Collaboration between astronomy disruptor Unistellar and optics icon Nikon


Nikon and astronomy disruptor Unistellar are combining their expertise to make space exploration an adventure that anyone can share.

Unistellar is the start-up behind the eVscope and the eVscope eQuinox which are powerful and simple-to-operate digital telescopes and with Nikon's help, Unistellar is hoping to expand its success. Unistellar says that Nikon's expertise in embedding high-end technologies into popular hobbies such as photography is a natural fit with Unistellar’s vision of making space exploration an adventure everyone can experience.

"Like Nikon has done and continues to do in many fields related with optics and imaging, we see Unistellar’s products spark joy and excitement on an important and meaningful topic that was previously difficult to grasp for consumers." Said Yasuhiro Ohmura, Senior Vice President of Nikon. "We are also especially sensitive to the unique way Unistellar promotes science and enlightenment at a popular level and are happy to collaborate in widening and furthering this mission."

Unistellar and Nikon also share a commitment to enhancing the human experience. Both are eager to join forces to promote knowledge, education, and advancements in science in general and astronomy in particular.

"The Unistellar and Nikon brands share remarkably similar values at heart. Not only this partnership represents a great business opportunity for Unistellar, as we are looking to benefit from Nikon’s incredible know-how in democratizing technology." Said Laurent Marfisi CEO of Unistellar. "But the passion and drive of Nikon’s teams for our common projects has been incredible. We can’t wait to reveal our future products to the public and how they will accelerate the New Astronomy revolution."
