Used Meade 8" f/10 SCT Optical Tube - UT-12146 - SOLD

 UT-12146: Refined and improved over the years, Meade's Premium Schmidt-Cassegrain (SC) optics give you the highest performance of any on the market. Meade uses water-white glass that delivers superior light transmission across the entire visible spectrum for our corrector plates, unlike inferior standard plate glass used by some other telescope manufacturers. Combined with our industry-leading Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) - with 15% better light transmission than standard coatings - and oversized, thermally-stable primary mirrors for optimum light collection, you get a spectacular viewing experience.
