Wide field observing and imaging.
For crisp wide field observing and imaging, nothing can beat a true triple-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO). Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplets are among the finest available optically at any price.

Meade Series 6000 80mm ED Triplet APO Refractor
This impressive 80mm (3.1") f/6 refractor has a focal length of 480mm, making it ideal for wide field observing and advanced astrophotography.

Standard equipment also includes a Meade Series 5000 2" diagonal with 99% reflectivity, built in sliding dew shield, and an aluminium hard carry case to protect your investment when not in use.
