Bring the stars a little closer …….

During the Winter months, I find myself indoors a lot more and obviously during the evenings watch more Television.   One of my favourite channels is Discovery.

I love all their channels but most of all love the fascinating insights you get into our world and the things that grow within our environments.

When I was given the opportunity to review the new Discovery Smartphone Telescope I was thrilled.

It arrived and was beautifully packaged.

This is a fab accessory for use on both mobile phones and tablets.   It is an 11.5cm long telescope with a 10x zoom.   This make taking pictures from a distance easier.

The Discovery Smartphone Telescope comes with a clip and supporting stand, meaning it can be easily attached to smartphones or tablet, or set on the stand for an even steadier image if it’s one of the compatible smartphones listed on the packaging. A great way to capture perfect photos from a distance, this ingenious mobile accessory is a great new way of seeing the world, and helps create fantastically detailed photos to upload and share with friends.

I tried it on my phone which is a Samsung Experia Z.  It did not work on the stand as the phone was too heavy and did not stand correctly so fell forward.  However using it hand held was good.  This is a picture I took of a tree in the distance.

This would be a fantastic gift for someone who would love to take pictures of the moon or who would like close ups of animals in the wild.
