EMERYVILLE, Calif., November 6, 2017 (Newswire.com) - With the Stargazers.Space App, users can look through telescopes across the world from the comfort of their home, no matter the weather or time of day. The user's tablet or computer can live broadcast video or share photos of their explorations.
On Nov. 5, 2017, Stargazers.Space launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Stargazers App. The Company must raise € 50,000 to complete the infrastructure that will allow any user to watch the stars: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stargazers42/stargazers-app-touch-the-sky. Once Stargazers.Space completes their Kickstarter campaign, they will finish construction of the first two observation sites, located in Victoria, Australia and Provence, France.
Stargazers.Space welcomes any amount of support for his Kickstarter campaign. For as little as € 3, Stargazers.Space will include the backer name forever on Stargazers App backer’s page. For € 10, a backer receives three months’ access to all live streaming in addition to other rewards.

The Company's goal is to make the Stargazers App the most innovative, simplest, and affordable telescope remote control solution available on the market. Stargazers.Space ambition is to make astrophotography as simple as the camera on a cell phone – just point their telescope and shoot. With the app, a user will be able to see what each telescope is seeing. With Stargazers App and a steering subscription, a user can control Stargazers.Space telescope!
Stargazer’s first two sites were carefully chosen. Because they are in different hemispheres, a user will be able to use the app 24/7 to see the night skies and to safely watch the sun during the day. Over the next 18 to 24 months, Stargazers.Space plans to construct 10 observation sites around the world. Each site has been carefully chosen for exceptional views of the sky. No matter the weather or the time of day, any user will find a telescope ready to show him the universe.
Stargazers.Space has already completed several steps towards completing this project, even before the Kickstarter campaign begins. They have their own telescopes, cameras and supporting hardware. The Company needs a 32 sqft (3m2) dome to shelter each telescope and solar panels for power supply. The core R&D is complete. App programming for iOS is almost complete. Stargazers.Space will port it to Android as soon as possible. They want to ensure that all apps and back-office support will work seamlessly with the telescopes to give to users the best possible experience.
