    Meade 80 mm Series 6000 ED APO Triplet Refractor

    The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors by Meade are among the finest refractors available today. Every refractor is independently constructed and tested to guarantee they meet Meade's highest standards in terms of both optics and mechanics.

    These scopes were made with regards to the observer as well as the imager. With an optical design consisting of three elements that employ the highest grade extra-low dispersion (ED) optical glass, false color is all but eradicated for incredible color correction, sharpness, and contrast.

    Meade's proprietary 2.5" dual-speed Rack & Pinion focuser is a new addition to the Series 6000 Triplet APO package. This focuser incorporates a 10:1 fine focus knob to enable precise focusing. To assist with attaining accurate focusing, the 2.5" dual-speed Rack & Pinion focuser contains millimeter markings on the drawtube. It is also rotatable to allow your target object to be easily framed. Recently added for this focuser is the 2" self-center locking ring for centering diagonals or cameras to the optical train each time the locking ring is engaged.

    Standard equipment also includes a fully extendable dew shield, mounting rings, a Vixen-style dovetail, and an aluminum hard carry case to protect your investment when not in use.

    The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractor will fulfill the needs of the most discerning astronomers. True triple element Apochromatic (APO) refractors are unbeatable for sharp wide-field observing and imaging. For any price, Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the best on the market.
