Introducing TheSky Fusion
The next big thing in astronomy!
More space in less time.
Simplify your astronomy setup to experience imaging like never before. TheSky Fusion brings your astronomy together in one space and frees you from chaos of hardware integration and disparate device control. TheSky Fusion attaches directly to your telescope mount and integrates the computer, power distribution, wireless, multi-device connectivity and remote control with the world’s most intelligent astronomy software, TheSky.
You’ll be more productive and enjoy astronomical imaging more than ever.
More space in less space.
TheSky Fusion consolidates the essential imaging components into a small, central location: the telescope. Gone are the days of lugging your power hungry and expensive laptop or desktop to the telescope to image.
