Goto Sun and Sun Tracking Technology
The Smart Solar Filter’s Goto Sun and Sun Tracking Technology forms a smart solution built on Unistellar expertise that makes the experience of observing the Sun simple and safe, filled with excitement and discovery.
This innovation makes it possible for the telescope to automatically point to the Sun, doing away with the tedious and potentially dangerous process of pointing manually. The telescope accurately locates the Sun by detecting and measuring the difference in brightness gradient in the sky. Once the Sun is centered, the technology makes it possible to continuously track it throughout the observation.

These once-in-a-lifetime opportunities can be exclusively viewed with the Unistellar Smart Solar Filter from America with other events scheduled in Europe in 2026.
A solar total eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby obscuring the view of the Sun from a small part of the Earth, totally.
An annular eclipse occurs when the Moon eclipses the Sun while it is at its farthest point from Earth, making it appear too small to block out the entire solar disk.
