What is Universe2go?
Have you ever stood under the night’s sky and asked yourself:
“What are all those stars up there?” Is there anybody who can tell you?
The answer is within reach: Universe2go.
In combination with the accompanying Smartphone App this newly
developed star viewer shows the stars with a wealth of information and
fantastic images. Main feature: Digital information is merged with the
image of the real night sky. You are, therefore, not looking at the
display, but at a live image of the real starry sky!
Universe2go is the world’s first smartphone-based AR viewer,
demonstrating what is already possible now in the virtual reality and
augmented reality world.
The power of Universe2go
- Representation of all 88 constellations in the sky
- Close-ups of planets, galaxies, star clusters and nebulae
- Over three hours of audible explanations about the starry sky
- The Greek myths linked with the constellations
- Fun exploration in quiz mode
Universe2go is an augmented-reality star viewer and app
duo that combines an actual view of the stars with history, mythology
and lasting impressions. Using your smartphone, Universe2go lets you see
the night sky with a superimposed, digital picture and tons of
information and descriptions, offering a truly revolutionary perspective
of the universe, and the chance to explore the cosmos with astounding
precision and ease. Just download the app, insert your smartphone into the viewer,
and when the stars appear in the evening, you can step outside and look
up at the night sky through the Universe2go star viewer. It will show
you the constellations, planets, deep-sky objects and anything that you
want to see in the night sky - your own hand-held planetarium.
Using digital information superimposed onto a real image of the night sky,
you'll get to know all 88 star constellations, the location of the planets, and even take a trip to a wealth of galaxies, star clusters and nebulae.
Universe2go even tells you when the International Space Station appears
on the horizon. With over three hours of audio information about the
observable night sky, you can immerse yourself in fascinating legends
from Greek mythology and beyond. Recognize the constellations, see the
old figures, and hear all about them. How could Cetus, the sea monster,
be defeated? Why did Cassiopeia bring the wrath of the gods down upon
herself? Listen to the heroic tales of kings, spells and monsters. And
you will learn why they were exiled to the night sky.
We cannot see most deep sky objects directly, but Universe2go shows you majestic 3D images
of these objects, taken with the best telescopes in the world, at their
actual positions in the night sky. No astronomical object can really be
seen in three-dimensional form, but the built-in technology lets
nebulae be viewed as if you were in a spaceship at that very spot.

Response of our customers
Really a super device
Customer’s review from H. D. dated 05/02/2015
Now I finally know what I am looking at through my telescope.
Universe2go tells you exactly where you are and what you are watching,
you can search and you will find. Especially the Deep-Sky mode
fascinated me, simply awe inspiring, the device is really worth the
money. Setting up was super easy on the iPhone 4S, I hope for more new
menus in the future. For now, I am looking forward to many clear nights.
My boss would now say: well done, I am proud of you!!!
Astronomy made easy
Customer’s review from Maasche dated 21/01/2015
With Universe2Go one can quickly explore the starry sky and is
additionally awarded with background knowledge, without having to read
through a vast amount of literature. In the beginning, we had problems
with the installation because of insufficient storage space. However, we
were quickly able to deal with that! We already have an Omegon
telescope and are very pleased with these products -> highly
Stars within reach
Customer’s review from Sternschnuppe dated 20/01/2015
Just in time for Christmas I was able to hold my Universe2go in my
hands. Very excited. Both packaging and the device itself are very
appealing and of high quality design. Both the storage pouch and the
strap for carrying the device around the neck are very nice. The
description is simple and easy to understand. I downloaded the App
(Android) to my Smartphone. It is important to have a phone with more
storage, because the App itself has a size of approx. 350Mb. Connect the
Smartphone and fit it into the receptacle. Fits tightly and does not
wobble. Excellent that this is possible in a modular design. It was then
time to start the App and to calibrate. By following the instructions
this worked without problems. Now there was nothing in the way to
obstruct the “Star gazing mode”. The weather god showed a great deal of
understanding and gave us a clear sky. Quickly became acquainted with
the menu control by means of head movements and off we went. On this
evening my partner and I watched the constellations Leo, Orion and
Cassiopeia. If it hadn’t been so cold, we surely would have spent more
time watching. ;-)
Our conclusion: First class equipment, which is simple to operate (plug
and play) and brings you closer to the stars in a most entertaining way.
I would not like to miss it and can, without reservations, recommend
