Lunático came out of the interest in Astronomy of its founder, Jaime Alemany, who has enjoyed and suffered for his passion for the sky since young.
The unique experience of watching, sometimes at a glance, the Milky Way in a clear, cloudless night, a cumulus, the Moon, or that of taking images of any galaxy or nebula, is usually accompanied by carrying telescopes, cameras, batteries, eyepieces, cables more cables… spending cold nights and making taxing attempts of setting up telescopes and mounts…
From this experience, with which we are sure you shall identify, Lunático came out in 2006 with a fundamental objective: to make astronomy easier and safer for the amateur astronomer, with an outstanding customer support.
As the company kept steadily growing, Jaime’s wife, Débora Sánchez turned from casual to full-time collaboration.
In late 2021 Andy Chessum joined the team, helping with customer support and collaborating in new product design and documentation.
Other key people include José B. Castro, who designs all the electronic circuits, Javier Gordo at assembly, Agueda Alemany as the Queen Bee in our Hive project and Bernardo Alemany, responsible for the product and company logos and general graphic design.
Lunático works full steam on making the most versatile products, especially for remote observatories. Most of our products can be easily accessed from everywhere, have smartphone apps to enhance availability, allow scripted operation, and are being constantly updated. And all are designed for long useful life and can be repaired in case of need.
Jaime designs the products and develops the software, while Débora is in charge of sales and administration – most of the manufacturing process is outsourced, with final assembly and testing being done at Lunatico’s by us with some part-time help.
Our products are available everywhere in the world, from local dealers in many cases, directly from us in others, with free shipping in most cases.
And last, as we’ve been repeatedly told, we offer the very best customer support.

At Lunático Astronomía we are aware that, among all of us, we have to take care of the planet, and we are committed to do so as a fundamental part of our business philosophy.
This is why we strive to make all our products durable and easily serviceable and offer the replacement parts or repairs that may be needed at a very reasonable cost. We also offer parts and advice for local servicing, as far as possible.
