Meade 115 mm Series 6000 f/7 ED APO Triplet Refractor

To find one of the finest crafted refractors available, look no further than the Meade Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractor. Individually built and tested, each refractor is guaranteed to live up to Meade's high standards, optically as well as mechanically.

The Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplet Refractor has been made with both the observer and imager in mind. A three element optical design using extra-low dispersion (ED) optical glass of the highest grade essentially eliminates false color to deliver amazing color correction, contrast, and sharpness.

New to the Series 6000 Triplet APO package is Meade's own 2.5" dual-speed Rack and Pinion focuser with 10:1 precision focus knob. Drawtube features millimeter markings to aid with focusing accuracy. In addition, this focuser is rotatable for easy framing of the desired object to be photographed. The Meade 2.5" dual-speed Rack & Pinion now has a 2" self-center locking ring to consistently align diagonals or cameras with the optical train whenever the locking ring is engaged.

This package also includes as standard equipment a fully retractable dew shield, mounting rings, a Vixen-style dovetail, and an aluminum hard carrying case to preserve your valuable instrument when not in use.

The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractor will fulfill the needs of even the most discerning astronomer. For crisp wide-field imaging and observing, nothing can beat a true three-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are optically some of the finest available at any price. Learn more about the Meade Instruments Series 6000 APO Refractors in the comprehensive video below!
