No. The eVscope is a connected telescope, meaning it needs to be connected to another device (smartphone, tablet, computer...) to be controlled, but an Internet connection is not mandatory for that device. It's only needed to download our application. For the moment, it functions with a smartphone, but we plan to add other versions (tablet and desktop).
To benefit from the full eVscope experience (observation sharing, notifications,...), we recommend you get a data connection but if you can’t find one where you want to observe, you’ll still be able to use your eVscope.
