Meade Series 6000 80 mm APO Triplet Refractor
This Meade Series 6000 80 mm APO Triplet Refractor is the latest addition to their scope line, and the perfect APO optical tube assembly for doing observing of astronomical objects! For crisp wide field observing and imaging, nothing can beat a true Three-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the finest available optically at any price. But in addition, this scope delivers outstanding contrast and sharpness with its FPL 53 ED optics!
These telescopes were built with the observer and imager in mind. With the three element optical design using the highest grade extra-low dispersion optical glass, false color is virtually eliminated, yielding astonishing color correction, contrast, and sharpness. This impressive 80mm, f/6 APO refractor has a focal length of 480 mm, making it ideal for observing and advanced astrophotography. Features a fully multi-coated triplet objective lens made from the highest quality FPL 53 ED (extremely low dispersion) glass, for outstanding contrast and sharpness as well as near zero detectable chromatic aberration or "color fringing".
Features a super precise dual speed 2.5" Rack and Pinion focuser with 10:1 gear reduction for ultra fine focus control. Standard equipment also includes a fully extendable dew shield, an aluminum front dust cover for the objective lens, and an aluminum hard carry case to protect your investment when not in use.
This Meade Series 6000 80 mm Triplet APO Refractor is the ideal companion for your larger Schmidt-Cassegrain, Advanced Coma Free, or Newtonian telescope. When piggybacked, a Series 6000 APO Triplet Meade Refractor is the perfect guide scope that doubles as a spectacular wide-field photography scope. The 80 mm APO Triplet Refractor from Meade carries a full one year Meade limited factory warranty.
