Meade 70 mm Astrograph Quad APO Refractor

This Meade 70 mm Series 6000 Astrograph is a true quadruplet-element Apochromatic Refractor (APO) telescope and thus offers unbeatable sharpness in wide field observing and imaging. For any price, Meade Series 6000 ED APO Refractors are among the finest on the market.

With 350 mm of focal length (f/5), the impressive Series 6000 Quad APO Refractor is perfect for performing advanced astrophotography. Contains a fully multi-coated quadruplet objective lens constructed from the highest quality FPL53 ED (extremely low dispersion) glass for remarkable contrast and sharpness along with almost no noticeable chromatic aberration or "color fringing."

Comes with an ultra precise dual speed 2.5" Rack & Pinion focuser with 10:1 gear reduction for extra fine focus control. The Series 6000 Quad APO Refractor also includes a fully extendable dew shield and an aluminum hard carrying case to protect your investment between uses as standard equipment. A front dust cover for the objective lens is also included with this package.

For photographic use only. Not suitable for use as a visual instrument.

Please Note: Meade Series 6000 telescopes now use a Synta style finderscope mounting shoe instead of the standard Meade style shoe.
