Total versatility isn't something you'd typically find in a telescope. While magnification tech has come a long way, most telescopes are designed to either gaze upon the stars or view the landscapes beneath them. The Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60 lets you do both, and thanks to its compact design, you can easily incorporate some sightseeing into your outdoor activities. It's available today for $109.99 in the Boing Boing Store.
This compact Maksutov-style telescope lets you stargaze with brighter images and a larger field of view. It boasts an included table-top tripod, an eyepiece, and a carrying bag to make transport seamless. Its T-2 thread lets you use the MightyMak as a telephoto lens, and if you fancy yourself a photographer, you can use the telescope's additional T-Ring to connect to your camera and shoot images at a longer focal length.
The Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60 retails for $134, but it's available in the Boing Boing Store for $109.99.
