Omegon 70mm spotting scope - Get to nature into focus
Ready for the next hike, a day at the lake, in the mountains or in a nature park? Wherever there is a view to enjoy, you can always discover something interesting with a spotting scope. The Omegon 70mm Maksutov spotting scope is so compact that you can take it anywhere. It fits in any rucksack. You don't need anything more than your eye and the spotting scope itself.
Small tube but large image - what you get with this spotting scope
Take the little Mak spotting scope out of its case, put it on the table-top tripod included in delivery and choose something to look at - it's as easy to observe as that!
You're ready to start observing in just 2 minutes!
The reflector design of the 'scope means that the light path is folded - making the spotting scope incredibly compact and lightweight. The Maksutov lens at the front end protects your spotting scope from dust and provides a sharp image. An anti-reflective coating ensures that you see bright and clear images even in low light conditions.
Zoom - continuous magnification from 25-75X
It's great to be able to concentrate on observing and not have to worry about the technical details. For this reason, the eyepiece comes already firmly attached to the Omegon Mak 70 and you can simply rotate it to infinitely adjust the magnification from between 25X and 75X. Slowly increasing the magnification will let you find the optimum magnification for the particular object you are looking at. You can then simply relax and enjoy your observing.
Back-friendly - comfortable 45°viewing angle
Sometimes you simply can't tear yourself away from an object you are observing. The built-in Amici prism means your observing remains completely relaxed even over long periods, providing a viewing angle of 45° which corresponds to a natural posture.
Table-top tripod for steady images
The Omegon Mak 70 is really only at its best when used on a tripod, so it comes with a table-top tripod already included in delivery. You can quickly attach the spotting scope to the tripod via the standard ¼" photo thread included. Fold out the legs and you have a stable base - perhaps on a bench or a table. You're now ready to go!

Our expert comment:
The zoom eyepiece can be replaced by a 1.25-inch adapter (which is included in delivery). This allows astronomical eyepieces to be used. Any 1.25 inch eyepiece can be sharply focused thanks to the long back focus. This opens up a huge range of accessories. For connecting a camera, you can use the 1250 adapter in conjunction with a camera-specific T2-Ring:

However, vignetting is clearly visible with this combination.
A Barlow lens can be screwed into the Omegon barrel to provide an image without any vignetting. A suitable one is the
