Some of humanity’s greatest minds have spend a lot of their time gazing up at the stars. And the study of astronomy has widely contributed to the betterment of society. But you don’t have to be an astrophysicist to appreciate and examine the universe around us, especially if you’re the proud owner of Unistellar’s Evscope smart telescope.

In a partnership with the SETI Institute – the organization responsible for seeking out extraterrestrial life – this telescope was designed to be both incredibly simple to use and absurdly powerful. In fact, it’s 1,000 times more powerful than traditional telescopes – meaning, with its 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, it can see things ordinary telescopes can’t. It also features smartphone compatibility for both control and sharing, can auto-detect and identify stars in the field of view thanks to its onboard database of 20 million star coordinates, and is still small enough to fit into a backpack. You can get your hands on this literal stellar game-changer by backing it on Kickstarter, starting at $1,499.
