Since the best places to view the stars are out in the country or high on a hilltop, doesn't it make sense to build a telescope that can be thrown around with the rest of your hiking gear? This Outdoor Monocular Telescope with Portable Tripod is small enough to be carried around outside, and rugged enough to not require a bulky carrying case. It's normally $200, but Engadget readers can grab one today for just $55.

Its removable tripod folds up to roughly the same size as the scope itself, so you can keep it in the trunk for impromptu stargazing, or toss it in your backpack for a cosmic night hike. In terms of optics, it offers a 90x magnified image with a 50mm aperture, and focal length of 360mm. The precision lens gets great detail in low light, and provides extra versatility with three different included eyepieces: an H6mm, a zoomed-out H20mm for clarity, and an erecting eyepiece for flipping terrestrial objects to the correct orientation. With the bundled Barlow lens, you can effectively double your magnification to get a closer look at small celestial bodies.

Right now, you can pick up this Outdoor Monocular Telescope for just $54.99, over 70 percent off its $200 retail value.
