Meade Series 6000 Refractors

The Meade 6000 Series Apochromatic Refractors bring both visual observation and astrophotography to the next level. These telescopes are available in four sizes, but one of them is designed entirely for astro-imaging. The 80mm, 115mm, and 130mm aperture scopes are all dual-purpose designs and are great for either the observer or the imager without fail. The 70mm astrograph, on the other hand, is one of the highest-quality imaging OTA’s on the market. It is a quadruplet lens system, a Petzval Apochromatic Refractor, and has incredible contrast, sharpness, flatness from edge-to-edge, and essentially no aberration in the image.

Focused on Perfection

An excellent addition to the Meade Series 6000 scopes is the 2.5” dual-speed rack-and-pinion focuser that sports a 10:1 fine focus knob for perfected focus. With the millimeters marked on this piece, your accuracy in finding that ideal focus will be an easy task every time. The focuser also has a 2” locking ring to securely center diagonals or cameras if this is what you want in your setup.

On top of this fine focuser, you may also choose for this scope to come with an optional 0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener. If you’re an imager, this might be exactly what you want in your new setup. You’ll have flatter images overall and all the stars in your shot will be perfectly pinpoint—so long as you’re focusing properly, of course!

For even the most particular of astronomers, the Series 6000 Refractors from Meade are an optimal choice. The optical clarity of the lenses, whether you opt for one of the 3 triplets or the quadruplet, will undoubtedly impress even the most veteran observers or imagers.
