There's beauty all around us if we would just stop to notice it's there. From sweeping natural landscapes to the mysterious heights of the cosmos, a telescope is an amazing device to help us appreciate these sights — but most telescopes specialize in either one or the other. This Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60 happens to let you switch between both viewpoints, allowing you to explore and observe with ease.

This compact Maksutov-style telescope fits into almost any bag, making it perfect for camping trips, hikes or star-gazing from your backyard. It comes with everything you need: a table-top tripod, an eyepiece, and a carrying bag, so you can watch what's on this Earth and above it, no matter where you are.

It even comes with extra accessories to let you play with your use of the telescope: there's a T-2 thread, that enables you to use the MightyMak as a telephoto lens and a T-Ring, which allows you to connect the telescope to your camera and shoot images at a long focal length. Or you can use the prism rail and attach your telescope to any astronomical mount with a GP profile.

So you can capture incredible photos, do some deeper exploring — or just enjoy the bright images and larger field of view the scope naturally provides. Usually, this Omegon Maksutov Telescope MightyMak 60 is $134, but you can get it now for $109.99.
