This site has been developed in France, to share the passion of the starry sky with the largest number of people, especially beginners. Given its success in France and French speaking countries, some parts of the site are currently being translated.
Stelvision is both a website and a company that publishes the chart Stelvision 365 (a great success in France) and provides services related to the astronomy hobby. The company was founded by Bertrand d'Armagnac, amateur astronomer and engineer in the space industry. He is also the senior editor and website developer, with the invaluable help of many people including those specially thanked here.
