The sky is always much clearer outside of urban spaces. Next time you find yourself in the wilderness, you should come prepared with this Outdoor Monocular Telescope. It provides a crystal-clear view of stars, landscapes, and the rest of the natural world, and is now being offered in the Boing Boing Store.
This telescope features a 50mm glass objective lens that’s capable of magnifying your sight up to 90x.

To accommodate different viewing environments, it also includes a selection of eyepieces for maximum comfort. You can grab this Outdoor Monocular Telescope with Portable Tripod for $58.99 in the Boing Boing Store.
