Meade Series 6000 80mm f/6 ED Triplet APO OTA

£1,110.00

Quick Overview

The Meade Series 6000 80mm f/6 ED Triplet APO OTA is the latest version of Meade's Apochromatic Refractors. Experienced observers have long known that a true triplet apochromatic refractor telescope will give near-perfect high-contrast colour-free optical performance on the night time sky. These instruments have traditionally been extremely expensive to produce and thus out of reach of most amateur astronomers. With the 5000 Series ED APO Triplet Refractors, Meade broke down this price barrier, offering exclusivity to everyone.

Building on the success of the 5000 Series, Telescope House are pleased to announce Meade's 6000 Series Refractors: bigger, better and altogether more impressive than their already illustrious predecessors. Available in 80mm (f/6), 115mm and 130mm (both f/7) versions, the 6000 Series all use a precision air-spaced multi-multicoated ED triplet lens to ensure the very finest in image quality and resolution. The 80mm 6000 Series utilises the high-grade fluorite-based FPL53 glass in its lens construction whereas the 115mm and 130mm use FK61 fluro-crown glass.

As you would expect, these three exceptional refractors lend themselves incredibly well to astrophotography, providing extremely flat fields and excellent, sharp snap to focus.

The Meade Series 6000 80mm f/6 ED Triplet APO OTA features a large 2" diameter machined aluminium Crayford focuser, complete with 10:1 two speed fine-focus control. The Meade Series 6000 115mm f/7 ED Triplet APO OTA and the Meade Series 6000 130mm f/7 ED Triplet APO OTA both have a similar focussing setup, but both of these instruments feature a larger 3" diameter focuser. All of the 6000 Series come complete with an enhanced 2" dielectric diagonal, appropriate cradle rings and Vixen-style mounting bracket. A rugged carrying case is a standard accessory with all of these scopes. Finally, all the Series 6000 Refractors feature a built-in, fully retractable dew shield.
