Forget DSLRs, This $47 Gadget Takes Professional Photos with Your Phone


A breakthrough new mini telescope that attaches to your phone has been released that is revolutionizing photography. We investigate the monocular that may soon replace telescopes and expensive lenses

With every year, smartphones get better at taking pictures, pushing the traditional camera closer to going the way of the dinosaur. But, there’s always been one problem, phone cameras are terrible when it comes to zoom. It’s tough to get a good optical zoom lens in the thin pocket size phones that we modern consumers demand, so the cameras in our phones simply cannot take good photos at long distance – Until Now!

A new product, Starscope, has made headlines with the recent launch of their new portable monocular that experts agree combines the function of a $3000 telescope with a DSLR class optical zoom lens, all at a tiny fraction of the price.

This innovative new device is the hottest new gadget of 2021, and a popular gift for the holidays. We got our hands on one of these new monoculars to find what the buzz is all about.

What IS a Monocular?

Great question! At Gadget-Advice, we review a lot of products, and it takes a lot to surprise us, which is why a portable telescope didn’t sound all that exciting – at first! The Starscope blew us away with a sleek and simple design that is easy to use.

This pocket sized portable monocular features and adjustable 10x optical zoom that lets you see up to 50 miles away, both as a handheld telescope, or as a camera attachment for your cellphone to take long distance photos as if you were inches away. Simply put, the Starscope gives anyone the ability to take professional photos even using your existing phone camera.

Have you experienced moment where your phone’s camera never seems to be able to capture the true beauty of the scene in front of you? Does it always end up “grainy” or blurry, and never as impressive as you’d hoped? Have you wanted to sit and star gaze or admire the mountainscape, but couldn’t afford $3000 for a high-quality telescope? With the Starscope monocular, it’s like having a DSLR in your pocket at all times, and with its included stabilizing tripod, you’ll get a picture perfect shot every time.

Celebrities, Bloggers, Outdoor Enthusiasts, and Professional Photographers are already making the switch to the newest, most powerful high-resolution lens. This is a rare chance to grab the next evolution in photography before the masses.

Better than $3000 Telescopes and Big Brand DSLR Cameras

The amazing thing about Starscope is that it isn’t a telescope or a photo lens – its both!

The chief engineer of Starscope Monocular said:

"Like many of us, I was tired of carrying around heavy, expensive monoculars and binoculars with their huge bulk."

"That’s when it hit me. Why not make a super-sharp telescopic lens that could fit in a pocket? Not cheap, flimsy, blurry lenses that make inferior images. Why not make a scope with crisp, clear, gorgeous images that are as good as when you spend $3,000?"

"Because technology was advancing so fast, we used modern CNC equipment, optical programs on the fastest computers, and high-tech designs to create a reasonably-priced telescope that was as good as those from the most expensive brands."

How Does it Stack Up? The Technical Specifications
