Can I use the telescope in cities, how sensitive is the eVscope to light pollution?


Most of our demos are done in highly light polluted areas (including the ones shown at beginning of our Kickstarter video), yet many people were amazed by what they saw.

Of course, the image quality won't be as good if light pollution is high, since the fainter objects will tend to disappear under the light pollution threshold, but you will still see colors and details on many of the brighter nebulae, galaxies, and asteroids etc...

In general, staying away from street lights (like going behind a building or trees) is sufficient to enjoy the objects like Dumbbell nebula, the Ringbell Nebula or M51 for example!
