A simple, backyard telescope for under $60
If the recent solar eclipse piqued your interest in stargazing, here’s some good news: the wonders of the solar system are on display on nearly any given night, and most of these wonders do not come with a risk of permanent eye damage.
You don’t even need any fancy equipment. In fact, with a small, simple telescope you can lay your eyes on plenty of objects in near and far space that you’ve probably only seen in books and documentaries—stars, moons, planets, and much more. This Outdoor Monocular Telescope can turn your backyard into an astronomical observatory and reveal the mysteries of the natural world to anyone with a keen eye and a curious mind.
With its compact design and go-anywhere tripod, this universal telescope can be set up quickly in a nearly any outdoor location, so you won’t miss your viewing window while you’re struggling to get it up and running. Simply point it in the right direction (up), and with an unobstructed view of the sky, its 90x magnification and 50mm optical glass objective lens will provide stunning, highly detailed images. With a little practice, you could scope out the surface of the moon, the rings of Saturn, the phases of Venus, and other must-see celestial attractions.
The Outdoor Monocular Telescope has a refractive length of 360mm, a 50mm optical aperture, a maximum of 90x magnification, and a resolution of 2.000 arc seconds. It includes a diagonal mirror, a H6mm eyepiece, H20mm eyepiece, a Barlow lens, an erecting eyepiece, and an aluminum tripod.
Thanks to a special, limited-time deal, you can reach for the stars with this telescope for just $58.99, or 70 percent off the regular price of $199.99.
