We tried a smart telescope and these are the awesome photos we captured

Stellina is a smart telescope that makes capturing views of the Universe around us really simple. These are some of the images we got with it. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Bode's Galaxy (aka M81) was originally spotted by German astronomer Johann Elert Bode in 1774. Our view includes 188 images stacked to create this photo. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This is a brilliant emission nebula which if you look closely resembles a bubble. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Cat's Eye Nebula is a planetary nebula that was first spotted by William Herschel in 1786.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Double Cluster in Perseus contains two different clusters that contain 20,000 solar masses and are thought to be around 12 million years old.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The view you're seeing is the result of an old star shedding its layers into the surrounding area resulting in a glowing and colourful display.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Eagle Nebula includes the famous Pillars of Creation - the whisps of interstellar gas and dust that you can see in the middle. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Edward Young Star (aka Messier 110) is a dwarf elliptical galaxy and a satellite of the Andromeda Galaxy. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Fireworks Galaxy might appear tiny here, but it's actually said to be 40,000 light-years in diameter. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Here's a star-forming region in the northern constellation Cassiopeia where the colours are caused by the emission of oxygen, hydrogen and sulfur atoms. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This photo of the Ghost of Cassiopeia was created with 477 images captured during a 2-hour long exposure.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This photo is made up of 196 stacked images taken in roughly half an hour and shows one of the most densely packed globulars known in the Milky Way. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Stellina isn't designed for planets, but that doesn't mean you can't have a glimpse. Here's what a quick view of Jupiter looks like.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
NGC 5907 is a spiral galaxy that looks like a slip of a knife in space created by dwarf stars. It's 50 million light-years from Earth. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Interestingly, M56 is part of the Gaia Sausage which is thought to be the remains of a merged dwarf galaxy.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Messier 71 is another globular cluster - a collection of stars that are tightly bound by gravity.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Caldwell 7 is an intermediate spiral galaxy that's located roughly eight million light-years away from Earth. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Owl Cluster is an open cluster in the constellation Cassiopeia. It was discovered by William Hershel in 1787.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This image of the Pacman Nebula was created with 342 images stacked over an hour-long period.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This one is associated with the North America Nebula and has a gaseous emission that looks like a Pelican.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This one is 4,000 light-years away from our home planet and includes a group of approximately 60 stars spaced around 14 light-years across. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This view shows a region of space that's just 410 light-years from Earth with over 800 stars in a close group.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This emission nebula is located around 7,500 light-years from our home. The faint red tint in the image is from the emissions of hydrogen gas in the region.   (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This one is also known as Epsilon Lyrae. The two brightest stars are located 160 light-years from Earth. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Stellina isn't really designed to take photos of planets. But it still managed a great image of our Moon. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Here we took 209 images of the Triangulum Galaxy which Stellina automatically stacked into this resulting photo.  (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This view is of an area that shows a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
