Unlike typical portable monoculars with a magnification range from 4x – 10x, this universal lens attachment enables a remarkable 40x – 60x zoom in a backpack-friendly package.

This lens dodges both of those common issues and even functions as a standalone compact telescope. Get one for 70% off in the Boing Boing Store for just $37.95.
