Product Description

Meade Series 6000 115mm APO Triplet Refractor

The Meade Series 6000 APO Refractors are well crafted optical tubes that are tested and designed for optimal optical and mechanical standards. This is both a plus for the astro imager and the observer. The three element optical design uses high grade extra-low dispersion glass thus almost completely getting rid of false color and resulting in true color, contrast and sharpness.

The 2.5" dual-speed rack and pinion focuser is a new addition to the Meade Series 6000 APO Optical Tubes. The 10:1 focus knob assists in precise focusing. The included millimeter marking on the drawtube can assist with accurate focusing and framing of a photographed object.

The equipment included consists of a fully extendable dew shield, mounting rings, Vixen style dovetail and an aluminum hard carry case for protection.

Another new feature of the Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractoring Optical Tubes is the optional 0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener for photographic use. This is excellent for astrophotographers who want pinpoint images and a reduction of focal ratio from f/6 to f/4.8. This makes a true three element refractor one of the best optical instruments available.

Optical tube measures approximately 31” long by 5.5” diameter and weighs 17.5 pounds.

Product carries full one year Meade limited factory warranty.
