LOOKING UP at the sky on a clear night, you’ll likely see stars bright and dim scattered about. Depending on where you live and where we’re at in the month, you might also see a bright full moon, a shooting star, and potentially even a nearby planet. And that’s with your naked eye—imagine how much more you could see with a telescope.
When it comes to picking out a telescope, there are lots of options available to you at a variety of price points (you can see our recommendations here). While some might only run you a couple of hundred dollars, others go for over $5,000. But of course, it also depends on what you’re hoping to get out of it: If you want a serious smart telescope that you can potentially capture scientific data with, the Unistellar eVscope 2 is a worthy investment. And better yet, it’s currently on sale for $600 off in celebration of galaxy season.
Through May 7, you can score the Unistellar eVscope 2 on Amazon for about $4,300 (or about $4,600, if you want a backpack for it, too). This sleek smart telescope has an array of cool features, including the ability to capture scientific data, light pollution reduction technology, live-streaming capability, and a Nikon 7.7-megapixel eyepiece for optimal viewing.

That Nikon eyepiece is of particular interest, as the Amazon description calls it a “defining feature of the eVscope 2” for its “best-in-class micro OLED screen, designed to enhance contrast and deliver a perfect black image, and a sophisticated array of lenses, sourced from expert optical labs.”
With the eVscope 2 in tow, you don’t have to head to a Dark Sky Place to see gorgeous stars clearly (though you certainly could). Instead, you can enjoy the wonders of space right from your own home.
