About Us

  is a registered company in the EU that strives to develop and commercialize high tech products for the amateur astronomical community.

The microAstro "project" is the synergy of several partners that together have more than 100 year in expertise on the fields of Robotics, Embedded Systems, Computer Science , Astronautics and Astronomy. Our development center is located in Darmstadt (Germany) and our production center is in Leiria (Portugal).

Company vision
Our goal is to offer, and keep, "fair" prices and we only offer those products that we develop, and those that we feel comfortable using them ourselves.

Pushing the technology to the limit is not only putting several great pieces of hardware together, sometimes the missing key factor is a really good "piece" of firmware to bring out the full power, we put a great deal of effort on the firmware and software development that make part of our projects, that is why microAstro is a multidisciplinary team. 

One of our major commitments is to the "fulfillment" of the technology that we develop, no one should have to "get stuck" with a piece of equipment that is not up to their expectations, that is why the "money-back" and "lifetime" Guarantees are so important.

microAstro business is based on the Direct Sales model.  Direct sales ensures that you get the best value for your money, and above all Direct Sales gives the ability to build and manage strong personal relationships with our customers. This allows us to better understand and adapt to the needs of our customers and to get feedback from them to evaluate the effectiveness and tailor our products.

You can contact us anytime, if you have any questions, any suggestions ... please do let us know, feedback is the most effective way to make our products work better for you, and in consequence work better for us to.
