The Meade Series 6000 ED APO Triplet Refractor has been made with both the observer and imager in mind. The three element optical design of this Meade 130mm telescope uses extra-low dispersion (ED) optical glass of the highest grade that essentially eliminate false color to deliver amazing color correction, contrast, and sharpness.

Meade's proprietary 2.5" dual-speed Rack & Pinion focuser is a new addition to the Series 6000 Triplet APO package. This focuser incorporates a 10:1 fine focus knob to enable precise focusing. To assist with attaining accurate focusing, the 2.5" dual-speed Rack & Pinion focuser contains millimeter markings on the drawtube. It is also rotatable to allow your target object to be easily framed. Recently added for this focuser is the 2" self-center locking ring for centering diagonals or cameras to the optical train each time the locking ring is engaged.

This Meade 130mm telescope 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.

This Meade 130mm telescope 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 telescopes are optically some of the finest available at any price.

Please Note: Meade Series 6000 telescopes now use a Synta style finderscope mounting shoe instead of the standard Meade style shoe. Learn more about the Meade Instruments Series 6000 APO Refractors in the comprehensive video below!
