If you’re an amateur stargazer but can’t afford a fancy telescope, we’ve found a pretty sweet alternative: the Personal Augmented Reality Planetarium by Universe2Go.

In a nutshell, the personal planetarium is a boxy viewer that holds your smartphone and transforms it into a star map overlay on the real night sky. All you do is open the companion app on your phone, snap it into the viewer, and look through the goggles for a personal tour of the cosmos.

Aim your gaze at certain heavenly objects and the app will provide visual data and audio commentary with fast facts or detailed lessons about what you’re looking at. Choose your viewing mode and you can see planets, galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae close up while amping up your celestial knowledge.

For your next vacation, take a tour of the cosmos. Get the Personal Augmented Reality Planetarium for $46.99 from the Daily Dot store — reduced from the original price of $69.99.
