Multiple observing possibilities - at home and in the universe
It makes no difference to this Maksutov telescope whether you have a deer on the edge of a forest or a planet in its sights. You will discover, for example, the large moons and cloud bands on Jupiter. Saturn displays its huge majestic rings. You will also benefit from particularly sharp images with plenty of contrast due to the built-in coated Maksutov lens.
Bring the distant close - a telephoto lens for your camera
A T-2 thread lets you easily use the MightyMak as a telephoto lens. An additional T-Ring lets you connect your camera and shoot images at a long focal length. The buffer ring also ensures smooth docking to the telescope.
A bright images and large field of view
The MightyMak is a reflector telescope employing the Maksutov design. This telescope has a slightly shorter focal length as compared with models from other manufacturers. This has a positive effect, with a brighter image and a larger field of view.
Locating the goal - a shoe for your finder scope
The standard finder shoe provided will accept the most popular finder scopes - so you can decide yourself whether you prefer to use a red dot finder or an optical finder.
Prism rail for tripods and mounts
The prism rail provided lets you attach your telescope to any astronomical mount with a GP profile, which has become the standard fitting. Three 0.25" photo-threads make mounting onto a tripod a piece of cake.
Gentle clamping for 1.25" eyepieces
A 1.25" connection lets you attach any 1.25" eyepiece, even when from a different manufacturer. Your observing ultimately depends on using the correct magnification and having a comfortable viewing angle. A compression ring ensures that your eyepieces are firmly but gently held in place.
A package for getting started
With the Omegon MightyMak you also get a table-top tripod and an eyepiece - all together in a bag. So you can easily take everything with you anywhere - on a plane trip, on an excursion with a light rucksack or simply in your own garden for a trip to the Moon and planets.
The Merlin AZ motorized mount is very versatile and can be used for a variety of devices, such as spotting scopes, small telescopes, camcorders and cameras.
The Acuter Merlin mount can also be used for planetary photography and surveillance tasks.
The package includes an L-mount and a Canon C1 remote cable.
