How does the focus work?

When the temperature changes, it may cause a change in focus. To correct this, STELLINA integrates an autofocus system. In this way, you can go to sleep with peace of mind, your pictures will benefit from perfect focus throughout the night.

During colder nights, we recommend that you get your STELLINA outside about 30min to 1hr prior to using it so the equipment can get to temperature.
