    LIGHTSAIL-GAZER + T-SHIRT, PIN & PATCH
    A great reward at $185. You will get a LightSail-gazing kit (equally great for stargazing!), which includes FireCel portable power technology from our friends at Celestron. FireCel provides portable power for your cell phone, tablet, MP3 player and other USB rechargeable devices. Additional features include a red LED flashlight to preserve night vision and electronic hand warmer to supply heat in chilly conditions. The FireCel comes with a Planetary Society picnic blanket and tote bag, so you can watch the skies in comfort and get it all there in style.

    You will also get your choice of a t-shirt (you choose either the LightSail t-shirt or the Planetary Society t-shirt during the post-campaign survey).

    You will also get your choice of a pin (you choose either the LightSail mission pin or the Planetary Society lapel pin during the post-campaign survey) and the mission patch.

    On top of that, you gain:
    ● Backers-only email updates
    ● Digital Donor badge to share via social media
    ● CENTIMETER OF SAIL rewards
    ● Your name to space.

    LIGHTSAIL-GAZER DELUXE EDITION
    Deluxe? You better believe it! Our LightSail-Gazing Kit has been big a hit, and so we’ve worked with our friends at Celestron to offer a deluxe kit with additional products to ensure that you are ready to get eyes-on LightSail during its 2016 voyage. You’ll still get the FireCel portable power technology from our friends at Celestron, and the Planetary Society picnic blanket and tote bag, so you can watch the skies in comfort and get it all there in style. To that we are adding Celestron’s COMETRON 12X70 astronomical binoculars, the stylish and functional Liberty LightSail water bottle (for cold or warm liquids, it’s equally valuable on warm or cold nights), a LightSail lens cloth adorned with an image of your astronomical viewing target to remind you of what you are looking for, and Celestron’s SkyPortal Mobile App so you can identify planets, stars and other satellites while on your evening stargazing excursion. On top of all of that, you still get:
    ● Backers-only email updates
    ● Digital Donor badge to share via social media
    ● CENTIMETER OF SAIL rewards
    ● Your name to space.

    THE CEO COMBO PACK
    Time to geek out! For fans of our famous CEO, we’ve put together a combination of items that will help you get connected to your inner nerd. Yes, of course, the LightSail bow-tie is a must. And then there’s the LAMY AL-Star fountain pen that Bill personally favors, emblazoned with the LightSail logo. And to top it off, we are including the full-size LightSail mission poster autographed by Bill (remember, there are only 350 copies of this handsome 3-color limited-edition, hand-printed poster in existence). Quite the set, don’t you think? That’s in addition to:
    ● Backers-only email updates
    ● Digital Donor badge to share via social media
    ● CENTIMETER OF SAIL rewards (with either (a) the LightSail Mission sticker and pin combo, or (b) a LightSail Mission patch)
