Gaze Into the Cosmos or Earth's Distant Landscapes with This Compact Telescope

Humans have always had an unshakable desire to learn about the unknown—to extend the frustratingly limited reach of our natural senses to discover new worlds, both terrestrial and extraterrestrial.

The go-to remedy for these woes has been the telescope. Ever since Dutch inventor Hans Lippershey attempted to land a patent for his new refracting telescope at the beginning of the 17th century, increasingly powerful and portable iterations of these magnifying wonders have helped us bridge the gap between us and the unknown.

But most telescopes are only suited for gazing into space or at Earth’s landscapes—not both—which can be frustrating for the insatiably curious. Truly powerful and portable telescopes also tend to be too expensive for the average would-be explorer to afford.

Enter the Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60—a shockingly powerful, portable, and affordable telescope that’s suited for gazing at both the cosmos and the Earth’s terrain—on sale for over 15% off at just $109.99.

Perfectly packable in almost any bag, this compact, Maksutov-style telescope comes loaded with a 60mm aperture, a 700mm focal length, and 120x magnification. You’ll be able to bring distant objects into crystal-clear focus using a telephoto lens, utilize the additional T-Ring to connect your camera and shoot images at an increased focal length and attach third-party finder scopes.

There’s even an included prism rail that lets you attach your telescope to any astronomical mount with a GP profile.

Indulge your inner terrestrial and extraterrestrial explorer with the Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60—on sale for over 15% off at just $109.99.
