Should This Tactical Zoom Lens Be Illegal In The US? Best Purchase 2021

It’s not too often that I stumble upon something online that make me stop whatever I’m doing and go “whoah.” And it’s even less likely that I buy these products since they usually never live up to my high expectations.

But recently, I was so pleasantly surprised with something I ordered online, that for the first time ever I’m writing a review. Because for the first time ever, it exceeded my expectations and has me convinced this is the coolest gadget of 2021.

What am I talking about?

A couple weeks ago stumbled upon a product called the StarScope Monocular. They were advertising it’s unique ability to hook it up to your phone, and then zoom in like crazy on anything or anyone you choose (see images below). And since it looked like a lot of fun, and they were offering a generous 50% off discount, I decided to buy one.

Now, I’m no stranger to telescopes. A few years ago I spent $3,000 on a top of the line telescope. It’s a big telescope that I can’t really take with me anywhere and I only use for looking at the stars, and I certainly can’t hook my phone up to it to take photos and videos.

But to be honest, I much prefer the $47 StarScope Monocular. It’s lightweight, portable, and extremely powerful. Even the biggest astronomy nerds will agree. In fact, because it’s so powerful and can easily hook up to your phone to capture clear and crisp photos and videos, which has made some people are worried there could be some legitimate privacy concerns.

The extreme zoom technology of the Starscope Monocular paired with it’s ability to perfectly sync with any smartphone and capture video and photos has created the ability for anyone to spy on anyone else from miles away – leading to some people trying to get this product banned in the US!

Impressive to say the least! I was able to get mine while they were still offering 50% off. Although I’m not sure whether or not this deal is still available, it’s worth checking out. You can find out more on their website here.

If you get one please comment down below and let me know what you think of it! It’s a pretty spectacular invention.
