Meade Series 6000 80 mm APO Triplet Refractor

The Meade Series 6000 80 mm APO Triplet Refractor is a perfect travel telescope for wide-field observing and imaging. It offers bright, clear images with its fully-illuminated image circle of 45 mm. Easily adjust the orientation of the scope relative to a mount with its mounting cradle-ring clamp over the optical tube assembly. Its Vixen-style saddle makes it compatible with any Alt-Az, equatorial, or GoTo mount.

Features of the Meade Series 6000 80 mm (3.15-inch) Aperture APO Triplet


The focuser comes with a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing. It includes millimeter markings on the drawtube to assist with focusing accuracy and is also rotatable which allows for easy framing of the photographed object. It also includes a 2-inch self-center locking ring that allows diagonals or cameras to be well centered on the optical train every time the locking ring is engaged.


The Meade 6000 APO Triplet was designed with prime grade extra-low dispersion optical glass, eliminating false color and producing stunning color correction, contrast, and sharpness! 


Operating at an f/6 focal ratio, it is easily adaptable as astrophotography equipment. Combine it with an optional 0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener. Capture or observe detailed views of the Moon and planets, plus bright deep-sky objects!
