OUR STORY

Welcome to the astrophotography revolution

Telescope Live was founded with one overriding belief – that astrophotography should be accessible to everyone. We think that all the wonders hidden in the night sky should be easier to observe. That’s why we’re dedicated to breaking down the main barriers to astrophotography:

  • Cutting the incredibly high price you have to pay to practice this hobby
  • Opening the gates to an endless stream of observations, available for everyone
  • Declaring war on the steep learning curve that comes with astrophotography

HOW DO WE DO IT?

It’s simple. By giving you data taken from professional-grade telescopes located under the best night skies in both hemispheres. Our network is the product of four long years, crossing deserts, mountains and everywhere in-between.

As well as travelling thousands of miles and visiting dozens of locations, we’ve partnered with the best suppliers to hand-pick every single component of our telescopes.

By putting our network at your service, we provide the most affordable way to access observations of every night sky object, continuously obtained with the best telescopes.

That’s all paired with a tailored onboarding process, which makes it easier than ever to start practising astrophotography. Not to mention world-renowned instructors, ready and waiting to teach you tips and tricks that take your astrophotography knowledge and know-how to the next level.

It’s not just an astrophotography service. It’s an astrophotography revolution. Be a part of it...
