    A hybrid of a moose, a door knob, and circus cup ride ?

    Looks like 3 lenses side by side, and one of them in some kind of a converter ou adapter.

    A lens with interchangeable front elements for various focal lengths...

    Well looks like lens, something to do with the (night?) sky, cars, there's 3 of them ???
    Ummmm maybe something to do with the length of focus? I think it might be something that can be used with analogue and digital.

    If this is a smartphone lens set I'll beat you up. Seriously.

    Whatever it is, I hope it's on at least an M42 mount!!

    The silhouette looks like a large format Plasmat lens set.

    Combining rumours and clues it might be some re-incarnation of Jupiter lens with some mod options included.

    Guess the countdown banner graphic for this item is hint #5: a spot (apodization?), a swirl (mini petzval?), a tilt - in a single package?
    I have no idea how this would relate to the "space" theme though...

    @faaabii I'm getting really worried that you might be right. Cellphone lenses ... Oh my ...

    @grunrader I think you're into something. Maybe a Zenit-built Lensbaby competitor then.

    @herbert-4 The shape of the cones reminds me of one of my vintage add on lenses for I want to say an old Voigtlander or something. But I am guessing this is Jupiter something or phone lenses. I doubt its the phone ones, they learned their lesson with the M4/3 lens kit. Make it so it fits film and digital or it gets the hose again. :D

    @alienmeatsack I hope that if it's a lens set, they make it M42 , at least, and ideally, T-mount with adapters for everything. Lomography development is very resistant to this. When the Petzvals were in the works, I had a long exchange of messages, and all they said was to buy a used Nikon or Canon. They seemed very young, aiming at common DSLR's, and all other possibilities seemed outside their imagination. All the SLR lenses Lomography makes should be on T-mount.
